Simon Lord and Theo Keating cut their teeth in, respectively, Simian and the Wiseguys, and that electro experience pours out (with touches of Pet Shop Boys pop, Radiohead introspection, and Stone Roses verve) on their 2009 debut disc as the Black Ghosts. The self-titled LP is a simple yet effective slab of infectious pop from the peppy "Any Way You Choose To Give It" to the moody, inward-bent "Full Moon."
