A brand new video from My Killing Game
Music by My Killing Game
Directed by Markus Bustad
Produced and released in august 2012
In 2006, Markus Bustad felt he wanted to create a music project where he could completely be himself, and make the pop songs he always aimed for. He felt that the best pop songs were made by combining the typical sounds from the 80’s, with more modern indierock influenses. The first couple of years were mostly spent developing the project, getting to know the technology and increasing his production skills. In the summer of 2012, everything fell into place. The 5 track demo/EP ”New Beginnings” got available on youtube and soundcloud, he got voted into the finals of the GP Scen competition by its jury and started promoting himself in a way he had never done before. Markus decided to record a full length album, with the goal to make every song so beautifully done that it makes you feel like you are listening to a ”best of”-album with one of your favorite artists. Will he succeed? Will he fail miserably? Follow My Killing Game’s journey here on facebook and on www.youtube.com/user/mykillinggame

Ghost & Writer – “Shipwrecks”
It feels like an eternity since Jimmyjoe Snark III, at that time still using the moniker of The Weathermen , exploded onto the EBM and New Beat scene with the track “Poison”. Singer Frank Spinath, on the other hand, is known for his comparatively more recent projects Seabound and Edge of Dawn, both huge hits in among electro fans. Spinath managed to persuade Jimmyjoe to collaborate, and the result of their efforts is finally here. Together they constitute “Ghost & Writer”, whereas they do not really give away, who´s the Ghost and who´s the Writer.
From the promo video clips, it’s clear that the duo share a weakness for black-and-white films, whose aesthetic matches up perfectly with the stories of Ghost & Writer. In their own words: „our songs are like short films. Like the characters in a film noir, the protagonists in our songs are often fighting a losing battle because they romanticize too deeply that which they cannot have, and so they collapse. Or they are fleeing from that which they actually desire.
Musically the album is characterized by a certain effortlessness, like old movie theaters or carousels. It resonants with both a playfulness as well as with a deep romantic desire.”
Snark and Spinath give conventional songwriting the cold shoulder and turn instead to brazenly modern structures as well as beloved yet nearly forgotten retro-elements, or as they put it: „Mean little stories blown up to cinematic proportions. Stranded and battered electronic memorials of better days. And yet, so fresh it almost hurts.”
Seldom has the combination of old and new born such creative fruit as on Ghost & Writer’s debut LP “Shipwrecks”. Breaking further new ground, the 8-track album also includes 8 re-workings of the songs by other artists — serving as its own remix album. Artists such as File Not Found, Edge Of Dawn, Diskonnekted, Iris and Acretongue have given the tracks their personal touch. In particular, the mix by electroclashers File Not Found looks likely to have good chances in the clubs.
The highly professional recording was mastered by none other than Front 242′s Daniel B., bringing out the fresh, new, and unconventional accents of an album sure to stand out in 2011′s otherwise rather sedentary electro landscape.
