Stasis Open Today
Coming 26th August
The new album from Belbury Poly, New Ways Out is available today, on LP and Download in all its eerie, daft, glam, faux-folk, motorik, library-ish eerie glory.
“…the new LP by Jupp’s Belbury Poly succeeds purely as a listening experience. Lighter than most Ghost Box fare, Jupp and a small gang of session musicians explore space-age glam (“Hey Now Here He Comes”), fingerpicked folk (“Water Wheel”) and a sort of English pastoral take on Michael Rother-style Krautrock. The sepia edges and occult undercurrents are mostly absent, but New Ways Out ploughs a satisfying new furrow.” UNCUT
“…transporting you to those especially daft places only BP can – Tizer-fuelled 70s youth club discos with side-rooms for Ouija boards” Electronic Sound
“…there’s an added bounce and groove that makes New Ways Out Belbury Poly’s most immediate and accessible release to date.” Shindig
The next in our Other Voices series of singles is available to pre-order today. This time it’s two beautiful songs from Portuguese group Beautify Junkyards. It’s released on 10th June and follows on from their remarkable album of last year The Beast Shouted Love.
If you place a pre-order for this in our shop alongside something else, the good people at Greedbag will dispatch the available items now and the single when its released.
Also today to, coincide with the release of New Ways Out there’s a new Belbury Poly T-shirt. It’s a pale pink screen print on a black premium soft cotton T shirt.
With thanks to DJ Food for album pack shots.
and Belbury Poly T-Shirt
Due on 27th May and available to pre-order in the Ghost Box shop now. The new album from Belbury Poly melds krautrock, glam, faux folk and ancient TV soundtracks across eleven joyous, slightly camp and oddly unsettling instrumentals. Moving away somewhat from the haunted electronics and occult signifiers of his earlier albums, Jim Jupp convenes his floating ensemble of session musicians to continue the exploration and illustration of their parallel world landscape. Including a guest appearance from The Advisory Circle’s Jon Brooks on piano on The Green Scene.

Pre-order now for 27th May. CD and LP packaging designed by Julian House with additional artwork by Jim Jupp. The 180gm LP includes a free download card.
Jon Brooks (The Advisory Circle, Pattern Forms etc.) and Tim Felton (Seeland), conjure up meditative pastoral poptones to make your garden grow.
Both artists cite the kosmiche music of Ash-ra and Popul Vuh and their simultaneous re-discovery of the music of Nico as strong influences on the album. The songs also have clear roots in both traditional and psychedelic folk.
Emotionally engaging and nostalgically transportive, ‘The Apple Tree’s golden-hued scenes and sketches should set you up nicely for the returning spring… a bittersweet paean to the half-remembered high summer tryst under the fruit trees that you never had.
Pre-order now and available 18th March on CD or heavyweight vinyl in beautifully illustrated and tactile packaging and also on all download and audio streaming services. The vinyl version comes with a free download card inside.
