The seventh full-length by this appreciated UK indie band.
'Paperback Ghosts' comes soaked in autumn melancholy.
Tender-hearted but not miserable, defiant but not angry, it
maintains the delicate balance that has always been Comet
Gain's strength. As the title implies, the album is about
ghosts. The half-forgotten spectres of lost loves, the people
who live inside their own sepia-tinted memories, the mystical
phantom presence of previous owners retained by used books, the
paperbacks haunted by old fingerprints... Blending psychedelia,
folk-rock, garage muscle and 4AM sadness, the songs draw on the esoteric that lies behind the ordinary.

Also available: PAPERBACK GHOSTS (LP).
