Ground level

So much for any idea we have of being constantly on the pulse of new music, as we'd never heard Underground Railroad before this EP and it turns out to be offcuts from their second album for One Little Indian - indeed, they were previously most noted for being caught in the crossfire of disgruntled Foo Fighters fans last Reading Festival. Produced by John Goodmanson, currently shaping a new Los Campesinos! album/record (delete as eventually appropriate), Pick The Ghost... EP sound like they should be in the college rock encyclopedia next to Sonic Youth, Death Cab For Cutie, Pixies, the Breeders, Sleater-Kinney and even the Dandy Warhols at their least cloying. In fact, they're about to support Cold War Kids on a handful of European dates.
