    Pray for Polanski has a fantastic new album out called “The Death of Dennis Patrick Robbins” that makes the very good Ghost and Bones album sound like they recorded it in a basement.

    If you liked the Ghost and Bones you’ll enjoy that “The Way They Stare” made it onto the new one and is mind-blowing.

    Three tracks are available as free mp3s and ringtones at
