This Old Ghost channels the Posies on “Emily Green,” from upcoming album Family Room

When we last heard from This Old Ghost, I profiled their EP Island of Violent Lovers, back during 2011’s “Year of the Album” project (they were #063). Their upcoming album Family Room, due out January 21st, features the unerringly catchy jangle-pop of “Emily Green,” which melds Posies-esque pop hooks on the chorus with the sunny pop disposition of Death Cab for Cutie or the Lonely Forest, making for an enjoyable listen. You can hear it below for yourself and decide if, like me, you’re now looking forward to the rest of what Family Room has to offer. Here’s hoping if I report back at the start of 2014 I won’t find them still mired in obscurity.
