#39;s the ghost.Of course, not all of the magic on When I Think Of You In A Castle can be pinned on the supernatural. Following the lake house trip, the band finished the album at their house in Chicago with Allison perfecting the mix over the next year; even while on their 48-city summer tour in their beloved van (RIP Shannon). Take the first single Ralphie, which finds Keery and Allison gleefully trading lead vocals while sounding like what would happen if Jeff Lynne fronted Thin Lizzy. Though Post Animals live shows have long proven that swirling riffs are the bands bread-and-butter, its earworms like Ralphie that show how easily they can churn out an infectious pop melody. Ralphie isnt the only song that finds the band sharing lead vocal duties. In fact, each band member contributes vocals like Hirshlands mesmerizing turn on Castle or Williams punchy performance on Heart Made of Metal.

Its such a transportive track that when Keery menacingly intones, Below, traveling slow out on your own / Your mind gelatin mode time to explode its a welcome invitation. Elsewhere, a longtime live staple Tire Eyes finds new life on the LP. Its a swaggering ode to a timeless classic rock song with Allisons falsetto beckoning, So forget about your day and let this record float you away / As your mind is winding, finding cause to be easy. The finished album, which was mastered by Jakes brother, Jared Hirshland, is a truly collaborative continuation on the bands kaleidoscopic and sprawling early beginnings.But most importantly, When I Think Of You In A Castle is a testament to not only the brotherly connection that these friends share, but also to the power of collaboration between like-minded musicians who just get one another. Before we recorded it, it was an uncertain time for us as a band, but we all just had a magical time at this l
