Peel Away the Ivy by the Pattern Forms is out now on LP, CD and download.
There’s also a limited edition green vinyl version exclusive to Rough Trade,with a special in-store performance by The Pattern Forms in Rough Trade East tonight, 21st October, at 6:00pm.
The Pattern Formsisa collaborative project between Ed Macfarlane and Edd Gibson of Friendly Fires and Jon Brooks of The Advisory Circle, expertly blending blissful pop with more exploratory electronics, its roots lying in the artists’ shared love of soundtracks and electronic library music of the 70s and 80s. It will appeal strongly to fans of both bands.
“…starts with a clutch of songs so lovely, a floating flock of diaphanous electronic songbirds, that it feels like being seduced. The melodies and atmosphere of late afternoon sunshine slowly gathers you to its warm beating heart where, it turns out, you would rather like to stay. I haven’t heard music quite so evocative of time and place since first encountering Air’s ‘Moon Safari’. But while that consummate late-90s album had just enough dancefloor in its make up to ignite an ever-so-slightly strident sexiness, ‘Peel Away The Ivy’ swirls around a kind of epic lOcc pop beauty and whispers in your ear until you fail in love with it and its pastoral eroticism. Gorgeous.” Electronic Sound

Pye Corner Audio’s Stasis was a runaway success and the vinyl version sold out on the day of release. We are re-pressing this but vinyl lead times mean that it won’t be available until 25th November. It’ll be a small run available exclusively from the Ghost Box shop. It’ll be sold first come first serve with no pre-orders so watch here, sign up for our newsletter or follow our Facebook page for news on this.
Until then we’d urge you not to pay the artificially inflated second hand prices. The CD is still available here and in better record stores worldwide.
