Give You the Ghost is the debut LP from Poliça, a Midwest crew borne of Gayngs, the faded-high R&B collective formed by members of Bon Iver, Megafaun, The Rosebuds and more. Known best for his idiosyncratic and curatorial production style, Gayngs leader Ryan Olson serves as the sonic backbone of Poliça, his focused beats and colorful flourishes offering an expansive framework for singer Channy Leaneagh. She makes the most of it, too, folding layers of her voice through webs of trumpet and bass, keys and drums. Her almost dub-like approach to songs—charging with the main line of the melody while scattering separate strands of it throughout the mix—makes for a compelling listen in big speakers and headphones alike, the intricacy revealing itself long after the urgency has impressed. —Grayson Currin
