Stop-Motion Happening
& The Owl’s Map LP re-issue
Pre-Order Now

 

The Owl’s Map was the second album for Belbury Poly, first released in 2006. It’s music that is by turns, jaunty and dark and was inspired by TV soundtracks, folk and library music and 1970s electronic music technology. It established the mood and the imagined geography of Belbury, the fictional parallel-world setting for the record label itself.

This re-issue has been specially remastered by Jon Brooks for this first outing on vinyl. Ghost Box designer, Julian House has adapted the original CD artwork to the new heavyweight vinyl format. It includes a colour card inner sleeve with a visitor’s guide to Belbury and a free download code card. The vinyl version is released on 14th July 2017 and you can pre-order it from our shop now. The re-mastered digital version is currently being re-distributed to all major download suppliers and will replace the older version by the release date on the 14th.  You’ll be able to buy the new remastered digital version from our shop on mp3 or lossless flac next week. (We’ll update the exact time of availability right here, as soon as we can.)

Also released on 14th July and available to pre-order now, is the new album from The Focus Group, Stop-Motion Happening. On LP, CD and DL.

ToiToiToi – Im Hag
Out Now

Im Hag by ToiToiToi is out today on LP, CD or download. As always the beautiful CD and LP packaging is designed by Julian House. (The 180gm vinyl LP includes a free download card.)

Im Hag is the debut Ghost Box album for Berlin based Sebastian Counts’ ToiToiToi, following on from his single for our Other Voices series in 2015. It’s very detailed and lovingly produced music, crafted from electronic, synth, sampled and acoustic sources. Its a wunderkammer of an album crammed with original ideas. All at once managing to be witty, spooky, melodic and abstract.

The music and design explores the polarities of folklore vs modernity, and wilderness vs civilization. It’s an album about German culture but it pre-empts a nostalgia for the vanishing concept of internationalism, once exemplified by town twinning. It’s also a warm-hearted record, hopefully a tiny  morale booster against Europe’s resurgent spectres.

It’s also a warm-hearted record, hopefully a tiny  morale booster against Europe’s resurgent spectres. Counts’ is painfully aware of the way that folk tradition in his country is something of a poisoned well and had this to say about the album on his “Lo-Fi Longings” blog…

“When it comes to tradition, heritage etc. things get difficult over here and with finding an alternative way of dealing with german folk and culture by also emphasising its’ psychedelic elements and calling the kindred spirits of other cultures for support, I always felt like being in a minority of one. The more grateful I am now to have found a safe harbour in the imaginary world of Ghost Box and to be able to contribute my very own continental perspective.”

As always the beautiful CD and LP packaging is designed by Julian House. The 180gm LP includes a free download card.

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