The duo of Alex Frankel and Nick Millhiser know a thing or two about getting a stranger’s feet moving. A little over a year after their superb self-titled debut LP, the fun returns with the release of Holy Ghost! ’s first new material in “ It Gets Dark ”. When something isn’t broke, it certainly doesn’t need fixing, and their sound is as fresh as ever with more synths, a catchy chorus, and some funky bass lines to nudge you in the direction of the dance floor. Like all the hits off their previous record, there’s an unquestionable mysterious [...]
Holy Ghost! is in competition for the Coolest-Dad award in their video for "Wait & See".
Maybe I'm not hanging out with the right crowd or something, but I haven't heard a lot of talk about this album. Personally, though, it's one of my favorites of this year, it's fuckin' good and it's fuckin' consistently good from beginning to end. Not just good in parts. Holy Ghost! have been quite busy [...]
How many dads are as cool as DFA duo Holy Ghost! Alex Frankel and Nick Millhiser's? Not many I'm willing to bet. The new video for latest track 'Wait And See' features the fathers portraying the sons in a hilarious poke at their hip NYC lifestyle. It shows the geriatric hipsters dressed in skinny jeans, hoodies and leather jackets, waking up with half-eaten pizzas in a messy bed, msning Classixx , and finally chatting up fitties after a gig they play. I'll be honest, the track isn't their best and to those more familiar with [...]
Holy Ghost! – Holy Ghost! MMMM Following years of critically-acclaimed singles, remixes, and one EP, NYC duo Holy Ghost! are finally releasing their eponymous debut full-length – and boy was it worth the wait. Across the album’s 10 tracks, it’s clear that Holy Ghost! (aka childhood friends Alex Frankel and Nick Millhiser) devoted a great deal of time to fine-tuning their introductory statement into something of replay value. This is more than just another speck on the map of modern day electropop/dance music, [...]
Upon first listen, it’s clear that the creativity that could have gone into the album title was all spent on the tuneage where it counts.
Can an album really have a perfect ten of the most heart resounding tracks ever created and put them onto a path of electronic, disco and cosmic funk -anthem vastness? Well.. the answer may well have to be yes, as Holy Ghost! with their “Holy Ghost!” LP have truly gone out of their inspired way to sculpt a sure-fire contender for the newly entitled “ 1002 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die” textbook. Back in 2010, Holy Ghost! dropped a “ Static On The Wire ” 4 track EP featuring the album entitled track of [...]

Brooklyn's Alex Frankel and Nick Millhiser are the indie electronica group Holy Ghost! The two first met up all the way back in elementary school, and have developed a strong musical relationship since then. Moby, MGMT, Cut Copy , and LCD Soundsystem have all requested for this up-and-coming duo to remix their songs. Their music is definitely different and a change-up from what you usually hear on this site. Their single, Do it Again , has a very 802s vintage feel. They are able to successfully utilize this sound without sounding [...]
I saw Phoenix at Terminal 5 about two months ago and what a show it was. Unlike most bands, Phoenix actually sounds better live, the music is as loud and energetic as it is crystal clear. The French men are also quite the showmen, there was one point when lead singer Thomas Mars just laid down right next to the speakers and pretty much relaxed for a songs duration, got right back up and rocked the place all over again. The place was packed and everyone seemed to be having a blast. Great music and lot's of pretty girls, highly [...]
