The Ghosts of Handsome Skin (GOHS) is a set of songs inspired by Pablo D'Stair's prose/poetry with an acute focus on anxiety, projection, and isolation.

"I wanted to bring out the dramatic nature of a person's inner thoughts, with emotional peaks and valleys accentuated by the music," says pgf. On track 2, "Disquieted," a person torments themself over learning the motives of an acquaintance, "There's something unhealthy in the proposition / Or at least there is something that should be considered unhealthy"; the text gradually tears away at the music's stately plod until the tune is unrecognizable.

GOHS includes unreleased material from 2012 recording sessions with engineer/co-producer, Eamonn Aiken (Inner Ear Studios, The Bastille) in Rockville, Maryland, and related demos. credits released March 8, 2023
