Ghostlimb features Justin Smith, the deviated mind that brought you the "cinematic grind" favorites like the Destination Time trilogy, Los Angeles and the engineering achievement that is Graf Orlock's Doombox EP. But Ghostlimb is an entirely different animal. While both practice in skewed hardcore, Ghostlimb eschews humor in favor of a more focused brutality and more straight-ahead punk rock on Confluence, the follow-up to Infrastructure which ill be out via Vitriol Records on July 10th.
Ghostlimb's latest LP spans a taut 23 minutes over twelve tracks, four of which are streaming below -- including "Canidae", which makes its first appearance here. Head below for a stream of the tracks, lyrics to "Canidae," and Justin Smith's interpretation of the song.
While Ghostlimb currently have no tour dates, Graf Orlock does as part of a European tour. A listing of all of those dates, the song streams, lyrics and interpretation are below.

Audacity @ the FYF Fest Fan Appreciation Day in May
What are you doing over Labor Day weekend? Beach? ATP New York? Black Army Jacket? Chances are that if you live in LA and like your indie peppered in with a bit of stoner doom and hardcore, that you'll be at FYF Fest on September 4th at Los Angeles State Historic Park. The event will feature performances from The Rapture (who recently played a surprise show at Union Pool), Panda Bear (who is playing Governor's Island), Sleep (who play ATP the day before and NYC a few days later), the return of Unbroken (wow), !!! (who also play a Pool Party), 7 Seconds, Ted Leo & The Pharmacists (who isn't retiring, is playing Siren), Screaming Females (them too), Aerial Pink's Haunted Graffiti (on tour now), Titus Andronicus... the list goes on and on.
On May 8th, FYF Fest held a Fan Appreciation Show at the Glasshouse in Pomona, and in two other locations that were right next door (including the Glass House Record Store). BV LA correspondent Rachel Carr was there. Her pictures from that show along with the full FYF Fest lineup, videos and more, below...
Justin Smith is a knowing and smirky smartass in Graf Orlock , but besides serving as a member of the perennial cinefreak grinders as well as the comparatively more straight-faced Ghostlimb, the guitarist also has the fires burning for another venture, Dangers.
The first Dangers LP Anger crash-landed in 2006 (stream it) and four years the later the band is preparing to unleash their second LP, Messy Isn't It (pictured above). Names after a suicide note by writer Richard Brautigan, Justin Smith will release the record via his own Vitriol Records imprint. Pre order that record now. Dangers recently dropped "Under The Affluence" at Decibel and have dropped a second track called "I'll Clap When I'm Impressed". Get both above.
Dangers isn't currently touring, but both Graf Orlock and Ghostlimb are.... in Japan. Their tour dates, as well as a few videos are below...
