Six years after the release of their self-titled album, 13 & God (the collective of Themselves and The Notwist) give returns to the music scene with their latest release, Own Your Ghost. Ten tracks mixed with complex beats and sharp vocals gradually mature into a harmony of both fresh and electronically manipulated sounds. It’s almost hard to tell you’re listening to the same group as you flip from one track to the next, but that’s all part of the dynamic beauty. They jump from tracks that hum inspirational ballads of daydreams and reveries to harder vocals that call for rebellion. For the most part, you never really know how much you love something until it’s gone. But every now and then, it comes back and you’re allowed to love it like you should have the first time around. 13 & God came back. You know what to do.
