On Ghost Games, D.C.'s guitar-free quartet Apes create a sound that acts as a window to an alternate world, some strange dimension where Black Sabbath and Deep Purple team up to create a dense, swirling storm of organ, impossibly fuzzy bass, and soaring vocals. This effort is a showcase for Apes' ability to write dynamic, shifting songs that find the band pairing sparse arrangements with heavy dirges of organ and Moog with a feeling that has decidedly less garage influence. Instead, Ghost Games finds the group making a decisive shift toward a darker, heavier, and more atmospheric psychedelic influence.
