North Carolina band Stereospread has released their new EP, “The Ghost and the Grave,” to loud critical acclaim. Stereospread refers to their particular style of music as “electropop,” or, as an early bio describes their music, “intoxicating electronic pop music that evokes the full spectrum of human emotion.” The album contains six tracks comprising twenty-five minutes’ worth of listening, making it a fairly comprehensive extended play record.

Stereospread’s sound is beautiful, spacious, full of rhythm and dark panache, at first reminiscent of early nineties house music such as Depeche Mode, and then more akin to modern acts like Florence and the Machine. Members cite artists such as Evanescence, Garbage, Curve, and Goldfrapp as major influences, but Stereospread does not sound derivative of them. Rather, they have synthesized many of the best traits of these musicians, and share commonalities with others, also. Stylings of Los Angeles and London gothic acts are also present, for example, a la Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Cocteau Twins, or The Mission UK. This may partially be the result of the album’s story and setting, detailed below.

Stereospread’s “The Ghost and the Grave” is a concept EP about an imaginary town with an imaginary mansion looming over it called Braddock Manor. Naturally, nightmarish occurrances happened to the family that lived there long ago, as well as to the branches of their progeny, leading to the manor’s being abandoned. In a flourish of shameless creativity and colorful imagination, Stereospread includes with the physical copies of the album several “aged” documents that serve as lyric sheets, as well as props for the story of what happened at Braddock Manor.

Overall, “The Ghost and the Grave” is a top-notch release from a brilliant trio of musicians, highly recommended to fans of classy, stylish, electronic pop music and to anyone with a soft spot for fringe darkwave or nineties-era goth tunes.

Stereospread is James Hopkins, Sara Snyder, and Clark Eden.
