Drawing heavily from a set of musical heroes that includes Guided by Voices and the wistful Elephant 6 collective, B+P formed in the crowded NYC music scene in 2005. Their debut EP followed shortly and was an immediate hit in blog circles, described as "an exhilarating racket" (sixeyes). They sold 2000 copies themselves and enjoyed over 50,000 downloads of one single alone. In 2007 the band bunkered down and wrote Ghost Types, bringing in producer Chris Zane (Les Savy Fav, Asobi Seksu). The result is an 11-song record that is equal parts 90s style indie rock, psych influenced harmony, and analog synth intricacy.
