I first visited Montreal in August 2008. There, I have a second cousin once removed who’s got almost the same name as me. He used to play drums and played in a band. One time he mentioned Nine Inch Nails. That band name stayed on the back of my head until a year later, when I actually checked them out… and found out it was actually just one guy. And he had just released two free albums. Ghosts I-IV was the first album from him I listened to, and although it’s quite different from his usual stuff it opened my mind to a new musical palette. I still have to find an ambient album as dark as that quadruple EP.
