The A side is a cover of The Incredible String Band song, Painting Box, originally written by Mike Heron. It’s a collaboration between Beautify Junkyards and Belbury Poly and produced by Jim Jupp. The flipside is an original by Beautify Junkyards, Ritual in Transfigured Time, produced by João Branco Kyron.
The super heavyweight vinyl single is packaged in a gorgeous gatefold sleeve designed by Julian House. Orders & pre-orders from the Ghost Box shop come with access to a free DL version of this single.
Like many labels our release schedule for this year has been severely held up by immense pressure on the vinyl pressing industry due to increased demand & COVID work regs. But there’s more on the way from Ghost Box fairly soon. The vinyl & CD versions of last year’s Intermission compilation and the new album by ToiToiToi, Vaganten. Hopefully both will appear in June or July.
In the Ghost Box shop now.
The new album by Beautify Junkyards, Cosmorama, is out today on LP, CD & Digital formats.
It’s a strange, rewarding album, rich with depth and texture.
There’s crepuscular gloom here, for sure, but also warmth and beauty.
Released in the freezing darkness of January, Cosmorama nevertheless looks forward to spring.
Beautify Junkyards have created a world of their own: lose yourself in it.
A wonderful record, one you will not soon forget as it takes its early place
among the best releases of 2021
The Big Takeover
We Are Cult
A song like “Cosmorama”, with its ornate folksiness, glistening with steel strings
is as lush as the sextet’s ever been; the glitchy electronics that introduce
“Reverie” immediately transport the song to other zones.
With beautiful artwork by Julian House, the heavyweight vinyl LP comes with a
free download code card and the CD is packaged in an eight panel digipak.
