Ghost Tropic is a particularly stark affair, even for Jason Molina (a.k.a. Songs: Ohia), a Neil Young-inspired singer-songwriter known for crafting emotionally naked folk ballads. If just a single instrument was removed from, say, "The Body Burned Away" or "Not Just a Ghost's Heart," there would be no song. So yeah, Molina is a master of rural minimalism. In fact, the 11-minute "Incantation" is nothing save his wavering croon and an atmospheric hum.
