are dropping "The Ghost Inside" as a digital 45, and the deal will include a totally unreleased b-side called "Meyrin Fields". The synth soaked new cut is streaming at the band's Myspace, and it's an interesting look at how the BB project could have turned out, had Mouse been twisting more slightly more knobs and effects with Mercer's laid-back folk. It's a welcome break (for me at least) from scouring photos and the blogs for any details on the most underground blow-ups from CMJ. Let's take the high road (pun intended).
You can hear "Meyrin Fields" right now, as it's streaming on the band's Myspace
is out now on Columbia. -joe puglisi
