Guitarists Brad Laner (founder of Medicine, also known solo as Electric Company) and Christopher Willits (last seen on Ghostly's Idol Tryouts Two compilation) have come together as the North Valley Subconscious Orchestra to craft The Right Kind of Nothing, the first full-length on Ghostly to be released exclusively via digital download. The album's wide-ranging sonic palette is a natural result of combining the signature guitar sound that Laner developed as a member of dream-pop trio Medicine in the 1990s with Willits's flair for both the delicate and the abrasive, which he has explored through accomplished solo work and collaborations with Kid606, Ryuichi Sakamoto and others. Balancing kraut-rock grooves ("Shimokitazawa Face") with all-out squalls ("Moving Through Wood", "Cardamom & Dad"), North Valley Subconscious Orchestra consistently pushes their experiments into the red to create a humbling and utterly absorbing debut.
