Salt Cathedrals
Scam Avenue
Scam Avenue is like dancing and crying at the same time.

Drum machines pulsate; synths weave in and out; jangly guitars attack then drown in unexpected whirlpools of noise. Voices—at once glacial and lovelorn—float on top of it all, reverberating like a half-remembered dream.

You can hear echoes of of the new-wave melancholy of New Order, the Spectorized pop of St. Etienne, and the minimalist art-funk of Can (among others) but in the end the sound of Scam Avenue is their own.
Ghost Cop
GHOST COP thinks the dystopia of our celluloid past is upon us. They find clanging resonances in the alleys of the mind. They want to hang out with Egyptian Lover and his 808. They’ve internalized the fiction of William Gibson. They appreciate lesser-loved 80’s drum machines. They are proponents of hardware-based digital synthesis. They enjoy a good light show.

GHOST COP is Lucy Swope (vocals, synthesizers and vocoder) and Sean Dack aka Pixelife (production, synthesizers and drum machines). The lead single “Cold” will be followed by a digital and vinyl EP later this summer engineered and produced by Abe Seiferth (Tippy Toes, producer for: Yeasayer, DFA, Reggie Watts and more).

“Cold,” is simultaneously upbeat and downcast, imagining a projected future that seems more possible with every passing day. The track is danceable without falling for trendy conventions of present day or retro ideas of synth based music. It is music for possible fictions and potential geopolitical scenarios.
