Watching the brief but rapid artistic journey of Ryan Thomas Schmale aka That Ghost has been pretty interesting. Beginning with hushed, placid folk before tearing into some scuzzy, solid and drunken rock. Schmale has arrived at something that sits somewhere in the middle. And apparently chilling in the middle means that everything has to be a mega bummer, so "To Like You" along with the rest of Songs Out Here, his new album on Twosyllable (out March 1st), follows that same blueprint. Basically it's an album of positive dark times—like, feeling bad but being okay with it because it's the holidays and the only warm place is at the end of a bar.
