    My second album was recorded on a computer. It was a big leap for me since I was a 4-track tape recording maniac. Actually now that I think of it, the drums were recorded on a four track and ported into the computer so some tape analog still in there.

    "The songs capture the listener with their melancholy: a hypnotic quality comparable to Townes Van Zandt’s early work. Gustafson doesn’t lose himself in the blues, as he intones on the title track, "Let the record show, a pirate’s life for me.” Ghostrain is an exercise in appropriation that draws on a pirate’s booty of sound and sentiment."

Bitter Swamp 03:18


“... Gustafson’s merger of folk, funk, soul and blues is quietly sublime. Many of the songs bring little more than a guitar, bass, snare, and the odd handclap in to carry the tune... the sound is intimately near, yet elusive. The lack of production gives the album warmth and richness...”
- 2007 Exclaim! Magazine

This album was written and recorded at the tail end of the alt country scene on the mid-west coast of North America (Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, Victoria). The scene that saw Nico Case, The Buttless Chaps, Carolyn Mark, The Sadies, David P. Smith and several other artists emerge from obscurity to notoriety.
