The mid-fi tsunami known as Black Fiction has taken the Bay Area by storm in the past year, with an electrifying performance at the 2006 Noise Pop festival and shared bills with the Dirty Projectors, Akron/Family, Dengue Fever, Fiery Furnaces, Helio Sequence, Kelley Stoltz and Oranger.

The brainchild of songwriter and mulit-instrumentalist Tim Cohen, Ghost Ride was recorded with trusted collaborator Evan Martin on the mighty reels of an 8-track Tascam 388. The result is an impossible cocktail of vintage hip-hop grooves, tripped-out folk, R&B outakes and pop sabotage, all stirred together by Cohen's hauntingly personal content and lyrical curveballs.

Wishing to translate the songs to both stage and dance floor, the two enlisted the help of Jason Chavez, Anthony Marin, Joe Roberts and Jon Bernson. This posse has carried the album's bold promise into the live realm with samplers, keyboards, bass, guitar, drums and drum machines that "smack listeners upside the head with a post-rock take on dub and noise that gives even the most jaded concert goers the cherished what-the-hell-just-happened feeling" [Flavorpill SF]
