‘Intermission’ stands as testament to Jupp and House’s musical and cultural curiosity. Always the most forward-thinking of retro obsessives, they have ensured that Ghost Box’s output, in the label’s 17th year, sounds as fresh and exciting as ever.
…like everything on Ghost Box it all is infused with an often quite explicit link to the past. It feels equal parts escapist and reassuring – particularly at the moment. There’s a real joy in just submerging yourself in the nostalgic bliss. Who cares if its your nostalgia or not?
A digital compilation of entirely new work from regular members of the Ghost Box roster and some special guests. It combines preview tracks from forthcoming releases and material especially recorded for the compilation during the global lockdown. Ghost Box releases never have much to say about quotidian reality but these responses to the situation have seeped through from the Intermission in the universe next door.
The version available here in the Ghost Box shop has a slight variation to the artwork and the proceeds will go to Médecins Sans Frontières. The choice is yours, you can either support a charity by buying right here in the Ghost Box shop or supporting the musicians via your prefered commercial downloads and streams.
Available now (although… this has been fast tracked so it may not be available today in all download stores, if not it’s on the way in a day or two).
