Rusted Rail have just released The Driftwood Manor‘s new EP ‘Holy Ghost‘.
Rusted Rail is proud to announce the release of the “Holy Ghost” EP by the Irish avant-folk project The Driftwood Manor. For this six- track extended player The Driftwood Manor (based around lynchpin Eddie Keenan) have crafted their own brand of apocalyptic appalachia. For “Holy Ghost”, Keenan worked with a number of long-time collaborators including co-producer Steve Fanagan to create an EP which takes on his fascination with the darker side of American folk and its relation to Irish traditional music.
Although initially intended to be an incredibly stark record with little instrumentation, the songs took on new layers of skin over the course of the winter months during which it was recorded. After adding a plethora of instruments in Steve Fanagan’s home studio, Keenan called in Bean Dolan (of Resurrection Fern), Fiddle player Neil Fitzgibbon and vocalist Anne Marie Hynes to add their own touch to proceedings. This 3” EP is housed in a hand-assembled and hand-stamped card sleeve, featuring a cover shot by labelmate Yawning Chasm.
