'To be human is to cope.' This aphorism is taken to heart in Ghosts of the Kodiak's 2013 EP, "Lifting Up the Ceilings". It is an exploration of the ways we cope with our dispositions, and the judgments we make about the ways that others cope. The mood is at times intense, at times melancholic, and at times lethargic. At any rate, the songs are best enjoyed loudly, with headphones on, perhaps with a modest spirit of rebellion.
