Nineteen-year-old Santa Rosa songwriter Ryan Schmale’s solo low-fidelity jams under the That Ghost moniker have preceded the recent wavves of like-minded Cali dudes by a few minutes, most recently heard on the “Never Have Fun” b/w “Your Backs” 7″, earlier on the two-tempo Pollard-tipping “Shouldn’t Leave The Estate” which dropped from his seven-song set Get It And Get Out. That tour-only CD-R also gave us the rusty, crusted garage jam “The Red Bow,” and the Jeff Thrope, Daniel Arnold, and Hanly Banks-directed video follows Earthwalker — a dude who seems as sweetly grizzled as “The Red Bow” sounds — on an afternoon at Brooklyn’s Breezy Point, letting go to the lyrics, kicking up sand, swallowing sand, throwing up sand. As in, sand vomit. That’s gross that’s gross that’s gross.
