The Invisible World of Beautify Junkyards
coming 9th March

The Invisible World of Beautify Junkyards comes out 9th March on LP, CD and DL.

A digital single, Aquarius, taken from the album is available now in the Ghost Box shop and on all download and streaming services.

Lisbon’s Beautify Junkyards effortlessly blend their love of English Acid Folk and Brazilian Tropicalia in a collection of songs that conjure up a warm and verdant faerie world. Delicate acoustic guitars evoke an autumnal England suffused with Iberian heat by other-worldly voices; the ethereal lilt of João Branco Kyron and the warm languor of Rita Vian. The production is tempered with a haunted electronic palette that anchors the band squarely in the world of Ghost Box. Their sound is further enhanced by newest member Helena Espvall ( formerly of Espers) on guitar and cello. With João Moreira on acoustic guitar and synth, Sergue Ra on bass and Antonio Watts on drums they are altogether an astonishingly talented group of people.

The Invisible World… will be the band’s third album and their first for Ghost Box, following on from their Other Voices single in 2016 (available in the Ghost Box shop). With artwork throughout by Julian House, the heavyweight vinyl LP version comes with free download code card. Pre-orders open 16th February.

(The Aquarius promo video was directed by João Pedro Moreira, see the rest of Beautify Junkyards fantastic video channel here.)

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.

The Myth of Violet Meek
by Oliver Cherer
In the Ghost Box Guest Shop Now

In the Ghost Box Guest Shop now, The Myth of Violet Meek, the new album by Oliver Cherer,  on the lovely Wayside and Woodland label on beautiful bone toned vinyl. Cherer is also known as Dollboy and under his Gilroy Mere alias recently released the brilliant Green Line LP on Clay Pipe Records.

If you go down to the Forest (of Dean) don’t dare to ask Who Killed The Bears?

Part fabrication, part reminiscence Violet Meek is the girl in the woods. It’s possible that she was killed by a bear. It’s certain that she was damned by her reputation and with this Cherer draws on, at times, awkward memories of his own youth living inside The Forest of Dean “rumours and fumbling, burgeoning sexuality in the woods between the rivers Wye and Severn”

“There is a true story, about the hounding of some travelling entertainers and their dancing bears and how the bears were killed by a mob in revenge for an invented attack on a local girl in the woods between Cinderford and Ruardean. This is at the heart of the whole record.” writes Cherer.

“…it’s the mysterious, melancholy atmosphere which haunts this record that lingers after the music’s stopped. Having also released the equally excellent Gilroy Mere album The Green Line this year, The Myth Of Violet Meek is yet further evidence of Cherer’s considerable songwriting talent.”

Outward Journeys by
The Belbury Circle.
Pre-ordering now, released 3rd November.

Pre-orders are open now for Outward Journeys, released on 3rd November on CD, LP, DL and Cassette. It’s the first full length LP for this collaborative project between Jon Brooks (The Advisory Circle) and Jim Jupp (Belbury Poly).  With John Foxx  featuring  on vocals and synth on two tracks, Trees and Forgotten Towns, reprising his appearance on The Belbury Circle’s debut EP, Empty Avenues in 2013.

Brooks and Jupp go back to their musical roots with this release,  a joyfully re-imagined soundworld that draws heavily on late 70s and early 80s synth pop and library music. An exciting transitional era that first saw the pair taking up synths as kids. With interlocking analogue sequencers, driving rhythms, soaring lead lines, primitive sampling, and its themes of travel and return, the album evokes the eve of the digital era, when “Tomorrow’s World” was still an exciting possibility.

Design is by Julian House, and beautifully captures the excitement and homespun aesthetic of early software and computer packaging. The heavyweight vinyl LP and cassette versions both include a free download card.

Also Back in stock today is Pye Corner Audio’s re-issued Sleep Games LP (heavyweight vinyl & with free DL code)
