In the mood for Ghostly

Ann Arbor-based Ghostly International has just released an app for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Called Ghostly Discovery, the application works as a mood-reading jukebox containing Ghostly's and sister label's Spectral Sound's catalogs, allowing users to create space-age playlists for what they want to listen to based on their emo(tional) state and digital (or) organic preference. After setting your own parameters, you get the option of reading artist bios and purchasing MP3s. Ghostly Discovery is free at the iTunes Store. Download it now, we say. Get it and find Dykehouse's 'Chain Smoking.' You'll want to hug it, guaranteed.

Ghostly Discovery was developed in a partnership with Royal Oak design firm o2 Creative Solutions, which previously worked with Ghostly to create projections for Matthew Dear's Big Hands Band North American tour.

Good work all round by Ghostly/Spectral, o2 and, of course, Apple.
