Om Ghostpoet
Ghostpoet alias Obaro Ejimiwe udgav i 2010 sin debut-EP “The Sound Of Strangers” og blev senere samme år af The Guardian udråbt til “New Band Of The Day”. Debutalbummet “Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam”, der landede året efter, blev nomineret til den prestigiøse Mercury Prize og førte til turnéer med navne som Metronomy og Jamie Woon samt shows på alskens festivaler lige fra Sónar til Glastonbury. Ghostpoets andet album, “Some Say I So I Say Light”, landede i 2013, og i 2015 gjaldt det treeren “Shedding Skin”, der bød på gæstestjerner som Etta Bond og Lucy Rose, og i øvrigt også var i spil til en Mercury Prize. Her i 2017 gælder det mandens fjerde album, det vanligt roste “Dark Days + Canapés”.

Anmeldercitater
“The supplemental voices are used to positive effect, whether they contrast with or echo Ejimiwe’s plaintive surveillance of personal and societal ruination.” (AllMusic, 2017 – læs hele anmeldelsen)

“Whatever’s ailing him, he cuts through the murk for his most confident, affecting and clear-sighted album yet here.” (Record Collector, 2017 – læs hele anmeldelsen)

“Dark Days + Canapés is quite simply Ghostpoet’s most accomplished record to date. As lyrically smart as his debut, and building on three albums’ worth of musical experimentation, it feels like Ejimiwe has finally found his niche.” (The 405 – læs hele anmeldelsen)
