And for those of you who delight in print specifications…

The paper is 100% cotton, elemental chlorine free (ECF), carbon neutral, and fully recyclable. Cotton paper does not yellow in the way that wood-based paper does and is therefore ideal for archival and display purposes. The 4-colour process inks are vegetable oil-based and biodegradable. The inks also have a water-based sealer varnish applied to help “fix” the ink in the paper.

Printed by Calverts, a graphic design and print co-operative formed in 1977 and based in the East End of London. The business is managed democratically through consensus and all workers are paid equally.

Pye Corner Audio, Stasis T

“A somnambulant trip through the cosmic void, Stasis is PCA’s strongest album to date.”
Shindig

“…from start to finish the standard never once slips, ensuring Stasis is an album in which you can happily lose yourself for hours on end.”
Kultur Magazin

“Rather than make up his own movies, Jenkins is happy to play the movies that are already running in our heads – and we are happy to let him do it. Every track shows the confidence of someone who knows exactly which buttons to push and when.”
The Wire

Incidentally Pye Corner Audio provide a large part of the soundtrack for the chilling documentary film by Adam Curtis, Hyper Normalisation. Still available to watch at the time of posting here on the BBC iplayer. Essential viewing and maybe more terrifying now than when it was released during the old reality.

 

 

New Ways Out, Other Voices 08
and Belbury Poly T-Shirt

nwo-packshot1

The new album from Belbury PolyNew Ways Out is available today, on LP and Download in all its eerie, daft, glam, faux-folk, motorik, library-ish eerie glory. 

“…the new LP by Jupp’s Belbury Poly succeeds purely as a listening experience. Lighter than most Ghost Box fare, Jupp and a small gang of session musicians explore space-age glam (“Hey Now Here He Comes”), fingerpicked folk (“Water Wheel”) and a sort of English pastoral take on Michael Rother-style Krautrock. The sepia edges and occult undercurrents are mostly absent, but New Ways Out ploughs a satisfying new furrow.” UNCUT

“…transporting you to those especially daft places only BP can – Tizer-fuelled 70s youth club discos with side-rooms for Ouija boards” Electronic Sound

“…there’s an added bounce and groove that makes New Ways Out Belbury Poly’s most immediate and accessible release to date.” Shindig

PRE-ORDER THE APPLE TREE BY HINTERMASS

The new album by Hintermass, The Apple Tree is due for release on 18th March and Pre-orders open today in the Ghost Box shop .

Its the first LP from Hintermass following their Study Series single for Ghost Box in 2011. The duo comprises Jon Brooks (The Advisory Circle) and Tim Felton (of Seeland and formerly Broadcast) who come together with an elegantly crafted pastoral pop album. Brooks beautiful production complements Felton’s rich vocal perfectly. Catchy songs with electronic and folk sensibilities are balanced by expertly handled abstract sketches and instrumental pieces.

Both artists cite the kosmiche music of Ash-ra and Popul Vuh and their simultaneous re-discovery of the music of Nico as strong influences on the album. The songs also have clear roots in both traditional and psychedelic folk.

Emotionally engaging and nostalgically transportive, ‘The Apple Tree’s golden-hued scenes and sketches should set you up nicely for the returning spring… a bittersweet paean to the half-remembered high summer tryst under the fruit trees that you never had.

Electronic Sound
March 2016

Pre-order now and available 18th March on CD or heavyweight vinyl in beautifully illustrated and tactile packaging and also on all download and audio streaming services. The vinyl version comes with a free download card inside.

Ghost Box is a record label for a group of artists exploring the misremembered musical history of a parallel world.

“Buying one of its releases feels like stepping into another world” The Guardian

“...what's most impressive about Ghost Box is the aesthetic consistency and sheer quality of the material, recalling the heydays of labels such as Factory, 4AD and Warp.” Quietus

“...some of the most delightful electronica to arise in Britain since Aphex Twin, the Black Dog and Global Communication.” The Sunday Times
