The second part of a series of live discussion and music events looking at memory. It’ll be held at Barcelona’s El Born Cultural Centre on 23rd November.
There’ll be a live set from Pye Corner Audio and a discussion with cofounder of Ghost Box Records, Julian House (aka The Focus Group). He’ll also be showing some rarely seen Ghost Box films and DJ-ing.
The Programme starts at 18:00 and admission is free. Full Info here: https://eufonic.net/en/sons-de-la-memoria-2-showcase-ghost-box/
In Another Room is a four track 7″ EP by very special guest, Paul Weller. On Ghost Box, Weller finds the perfect home to explore his interest in experimental tape music and early electronics. The four tracks here though are more than just experiments and build a subtly melancholic atmosphere from field recordings and melodic instrumental fragments. Previews and pre-orders available in December, released late January 2020.
Also coming in 2020 on Ghost Box:
A new album by much missed retro futurists, Plone.
The long awaited sixth LP from Belbury Poly.
And later in the year follow up albums from Toitoitoi and Beautify Junkyards.
We’re also hoping to bring you more 7″ inch EPs in a similar format to In Another Room, featuring special guests and collaborations from Ghost Box regulars.
There are three re-pressings available in the Ghost Box shop; Pye Corner Audio‘s Sleep Games, The Advisory Circle‘s From Out Here and our most recent release Chanctonbury Rings by Justin Hopper & Sharron Kraus is its second pressing. (Each heavyweight vinyl LP, has a colour inner sleeve and a download code card.)
“Jon Brooks conjures up a mood of eerie counter-factual sci-fi dread for a parallel 70s Britain.”
“Boards Of Canada style meldings of the cosmic and the rustic.”
“…another beautifully crafted voyage into electronic music’s substrata.”
“Sleep Games is everything fans of both the artist and label could have hoped for.”
DROWNED IN SOUND
“… an M1 retread of Autobahn undone by the spectre of sleep.”
“…the kind of memory-sprites often evoked by Ghost Box releases, this is music that continually slips away from you even as you chase down its essence.
“…a completely immersive experience – it is impossible to skip a track – and a fine achievement.”
“So much of what we love about Ghost Box is encapsulated here, on this supremely evocative piece of psychogeographic storytelling”
“Hymnal synths, pagan piping and hushed chorals act like a series of mantras to highlight the narrative.”
