If you have followed Ghost Cult from the olden days when we were a magazine more than a website, you might know we have a deep love for the Avant-garde, experimental, the underground, and the unusual music that dots the landscape as much or more than the mainstream. Coming from way out, but definitely falling under avant-garde and exceptions is NOUS who are releasing their second album, NOUS II tomorrow via Our Silent Canvas. Made up of a who’s who of legendary underground artists such as Christopher Bono (Ghost Against Ghost), Greg Fox (ex-Liturgy), Shahzad Ismaily (Yoko Ono, Laurie Anderson, Bonnie Prince Billy), Thor Harris (Swans, Shearwater), Grey McMurray (itsnotyouitsme, Tyondai Braxton) with ACME & yMusic string players, NOUS II is challenging and entrancing to the listener.
