The now annual event of a brilliantly baffling Moon Wiring Club release. In the Ghost Box Guest Shop now.
Double CD with artwork by Ian Hodgson.

Here’s what they have to say at Gecophonic Records:
TANTALISING MEWS could well be the definitive MWC Compact Disc experience ~ 2xCDs packed with 44 tracks derived from one of those streets or lanes that you pass every day but never go down. The architecture doesn’t quite fit in, the trees are different to all the neighbouring ones and it looks a bit too swanky for the postcode.


Disc A
22 tracks of prime MWC tunes that display both rhythmic inventiveness and an ample eerie-ear for uncanny melody. Numerous dancefloor-friendly styles of music are co-opted to coax up a bewilderingly playful mix of synthwave-sinister eerie-step wyrd-funk favourites with ruminative interludes. There’s even a warehouse banger lurking in the shadows and the exact propulsive sound of a ghost processing fog.


Disc B
Contains 22 tracks of drifty-dream environment and mildly mildewed melody, a sweet-smelling feathering fog of wistfully romantic and unsettling moods, prescribed as a unsettling sleeping draught taken underneath a much-loved lavender blanket. Long-form beat-free compositions conjured up from an alternative 1980s perfume ad nestle charmingly next to a gaslight spirit-web of sly disassociation and mnemonic trickery. Ghostly apparitions wave from far-away lilac window-frames, and the fancy figure forming out of midnight-mist in the apple orchard looks really weirdly familiar.

“…some of Moon Wiring Club’s best work yet. ”

Sleep Games DL Card Problem

Some copies of the recent LP re-issue of Sleep Games have been packed with what looks like a DL card for Owl’s Map. The code is good for Sleep Games however. (It’s just the wrong artwork & URL !) So please redeem your code here instead :

Our sincere apologies for any frustration caused if you happen to be the owner of one of these super-collectible versions of the album.

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
