So I have been following Noah Gundersen, like a forum lurker, on-and-off for the last couple yearsÂ now. Â I don’t always think his albums are 100% Slowcoustic, but god-DAMN, when they are good they transcend any artist around. This came to me after listening to his tour EP “Twenty-Something” – I can’t express how good it is to this day….it is freakin’ good. Â I personally was provided with a copy from a friend who attended the tour (you can grab it as part of the deluxe version of ‘Ledges’ on iTunes or other places I guess). Â So then I begged this concert goerÂ who attended a show of Noah’s for a copy the EP and they obliged (thanks to my boy Adam atÂ Songsfortheday). Â Probably my favourite EP of the year. Â Hell, it is my favourite EP of the year ANDÂ if it was a full 10 tracks it would be my favourite album of the year. Â But once again, I digress…the new stuff is still upcoming…Noah Gundersen has a new album ‘Carry The Ghost’ doesn’t he?
Noah Gundersen is a fantastic example of what you need to listen to – in general. Â So far thisÂ new album ‘Carry The Ghost’ sounds like it has massive potential (which to be honest, I have not heard in it’s entirety, so I could be full of shit right about now) but maybe I am just projecting on the strength of his tour EP ‘Twenty-Something’ which I have already opined for above. Â None the less, I await with baited breath on the newest Gundersen full length, Carry The Ghost. Â You can grab the sampler which actually includes most of the ‘Twenty-Something” EP (less the Nirvana cover, which unfortunately is A MUST – but don’t fret folks…it is below in a Soundcloud link) – here: Noisetrade.
So there you go, a promo for the new album via Noisetrade which has theÂ previous tour EP tracks from NG. Â This is win/win folks, just go already. Â The video for ‘Heartbreaker’ is below – dig it!

So despite this post not really having songs from the new album, it should give you a push to listen to the new album. Â Yeah, sure…just do it already.
