Camp Counselors is the electronic project of Kyle J. Reigle.
Reigle usually makes clouded dream-pop love under the extremely fitting moniker Cemeteries.
Reigle trades in guitars and drums for haunting ambiance, samples and synthesizers while retaining the foggy vocals of his Cemeteries project. His first full-length album titled Huntress was released 9/24/13.
Musically he is inspired by a love of ’70s- and ’80s-era horror films. Some of that dark cinematic quality spills over into Camp Counselors albums as well. There’s airy, spare quality to the tracks that lets a little light shine in through the thick and foreboding pine boughs overhead. There are long stretches on the album where all you have is a manufactured beat, a tinkling synth line and Reigle’s high-pitched whisper, which evokes Radiohead on a few tracks, especially “Oslo”. While the spare orchestration and sighing vocals might sound lightweight, this album has a lot of gravity. There’s a core to each song that magnetizes, holding you pinned to it as the electronic snow falls down around your ears. It’s a great record for surrounding yourself in the solitude of snow, even in the middle of rush hour.
His second album, Spectrophobia was released 10/13/17.
