Sleep Deprived Music Review: Mother Ghost

Brothers Oscar and Thomas Flores of Mother Ghost will be releasing their debut album, Somnambulo. Fun fact: Somnambulo is the Spanish word for sleep walker. There are several sleep walkers in my family. Some of us are still not allowed to have bats next to the bed.

Mother Ghost is a post-punk/New Wave band. There was a revolving door of drummers. So the trio switched to a duo with a drum machine.  The band is currently based in Houston, Texas.

Oscar’s voice reminds me of the singer of Dead or Alive. The music is like Depeche Mode but more punk. My favorite song on the album is “Hiding in a Dumpster Waiting for ICE Agents to Leave I.” I also really enjoyed listening to “Somnambulo.” If you are a fan of post-punk and New Wave, then definitely give Mother Ghost a chance.

There used to be this vampire bar in Columbus. It wasn’t really a literal vampire bar but it could have been. I don’t know if it is still there or if I could give you directions. Was it even real? I’m pretty sure it was an actual place. If I could find the bar, I would suggest that the DJ should play Mother Ghost.

Was I hypnotized to not remember anything but music and dancing? Who can say for sure? Would anyone even notice? I do have a history of sleepwalking. The people that hung out there definitely appreciated vampire movies, Anne Rice and all things Gothic. The music was always interesting and remarkably good. The album by Mother Ghost would be a hit at vampire bars around the world.
