The Story of Radiate & Novocaine is the second album by Icelandic psych country outfit Gunman & the Holy Ghost, fronted by Hakon Aealsteinsson, who resides in Berlin and doubles as guitarist for Tess Parks & Anton Newcombe. Recorded and co-produced with sound artist BJ Nilsen in various locations in Berlin over more than a year, the album collects misery-ballads of dark alternative country and tells tales of love and separation, inner demons, and the surreal aspects of human existence. Songwriters like Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave are underlying influences on these wonderful, smooth alt-country songs.
