Vaganten, the new LP by ToiToiToi is out now on Ghost Box Records.
“A splendidly jolly excursion into Mitteleuropean medieval traditions…the most delightfully debauched holiday”
“…invitingly peculiar and such an oddly satisfying experience.”
ToiToiToi (aka Sebastian Counts) leads us a merry dance; a tipsy pilgrimage through a unique sound world of lost European landscapes, odd folk customs, faux medievalism, sample detritus and electronic melody. Usually based in Berlin, Counts recorded this album deep in the German countryside.
Available now on CD and all Digital formats. The LP version is slightly delayed but can be ordered now & will be shipped from 27th August. It comes on heavyweight vinyl with full colour inner sleeve and free download code card. Beautiful artwork as always is by Julian House, borrowing heavily from Brueghel the Younger.
ToiToiToi’s brilliant first album Im Hag is also available in the Ghost Box shop on LP, CD and Digital.
Don’t forget that EU orders from our shop have taxes paid here in the UK, so there should be nothing extra to pay on delivery.
The Ghost Box compilation, Intermission, is available now on CD and LP.
The Advisory Circle, Beautify Junkyards, Belbury Poly, The Focus Group, The Hardy Tree, Justin Hopper, Sharron Kraus, Plone, Pye Corner Audio, ToiToiToi & Roj
Most of the material was especially recorded for the compilation during the early phase of global lockdown in 2020. Ghost Box releases never have much to say about everyday reality but these responses to the situation seeped through from the “intermission” in the universe next door.
On download, CD and LP. The LP comes on nicotine stained natural clear heavy weight vinyl.
NOTE: Vinyl version does not include a free download code , but instead comes at a budget price. And here’s why…
The download version available in the Ghost Box shop has slightly variant artwork with all proceeds going to Médecins Sans Frontières . You can choose between supporting a charity by buying downloading direct from our shop or you can support the musicians via any other commercial downloads and streams.
Pre-orders are now open for this elegant, whimsical and slightly nutty album of electronica recorded deep in the German countryside.
In this second LP for Ghost Box, Sebastian Counts leads us a merry dance; a tipsy pilgrimage through a unique sound world of lost European landscapes, odd folk customs, cod-medievalism, sample detritus and electronic melody.
Released on 20th August on CD and all Digital formats. The heavyweight vinyl version is slightly delayed and will be shipped from 27th August, it comes with full colour inner sleeve and free download code card.
We’d like to reassure EU customers that taxes on orders are now prepaid here in the UK. Our shop staff have this message, “Good News ! Since the 1st of July all Greedbag orders of less than €150 will no longer be subject to any additional taxes in the EU so please continue to support your favourite labels”.
We’ve had a fairly slow start to the year because of ongoing delays to vinyl production but there’s plenty of great new releases in the pipeline. The first two are out next month on 20th August.
Vaganten, is a new album of inventive, melodic and quirky electronica from ToiToiToi .
In this second LP for Ghost Box, Sebastian Counts leads us a merry dance; a tipsy pilgrimage through a unique sound world of lost European landscapes, odd folk customs, cod-medievalism, sample detritus and electronic melody. Pre-orders open 6th August and the album will be available on LP, CD and all digital services. The heavyweight vinyl version comes with full colour inner sleeve and free download code card.
And at long last the LP and CD versions of last year’s digital compilation, Intermission are out some point in early August when the vinyl comes in (with no pre-order period), so make sure you’re signed up to our mailing list. The budget priced vinyl version comes on transparent vinyl.
Next to come in October, we’re very excited to announce the incredible new album by Pye Corner Audio, Entangled Routes. Another majestic, awe inspiring synthesized sci-fi epic from long time Ghost Box roster favourite.
Also in October comes the debut Ghost Box album for Pneumatic Tubes. This is the recording alias of Jesse Chandler keyboard and woodwinds player for Midlake and Mercury Rev. Not his first appearance on Ghost Box, he also contributed organ and flute on the Soundcarriers’ incredible Entropicalia album. A Letter from Treetops is a very personal and contemplative album. Kind of American Kosmiche in style it’s a love letter to the landscape of Upstate New York’s Adirondacks.
The long, long manufacturing lead times mean we’re already lining up releases for well into 2022. So far we can reveal the much anticipated new album by The Advisory Circle, titled Full Circle and a single and album from a new member of the Ghost Box roster, Large Plants. This is the new band of the supremely talented Jack Sharp, of much loved and currently resting band Wolf People. AND early in 2022 there’ll be two new releases on our sister label Belbury Music, more on those right here, soon.
New vinyl releases may be limited and back catalogue vinyl is dwindling and can’t be reissued for a long time to come. So please support the Ghost Box shop and get what you can while stocks last. (For once we mean that quite literally)
There’ll be a live performance of Chanctonbury Rings in Brighton on 29th June, with Justin Hopper and Sharron Kraus and live video art by Wendy Pye. It takes place in the Spiegeltent as part of The Brighton fringe Festival (restricted numbers & safety measures as 21st June announcements will apply). Tickets here.
