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

The vibe is mannered psych-folk embellished with simmering electronics, recalling Super Furry Animals at their most reflective on “Patterns Somewhere”. here and there, meanwhile they abandon the song: the gorgeous “Luftglider”, in particular, imagining Klaus Schulze transported to a rural English idyll.

May 2016
Someone’s needed to do an album like this for a long time. Electronic but also multi-instrumentally organic in the way that a hook-up between Popol Vuh or Ash Ra Tempel and acid-folk dons The Incredible String Band might be if both those acts were current; but then washed with a poised, contemporary sheen of interpretive, skilfully referenced analogue futurism.

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
