Spacedog and Listening Center next on Study Series

Two new Ghost Box Study Series singles are planned for early 2013. One will be a collaboration between Belbury Poly and Brighton’s remarkable cabaret-folk-automata-electronics performers, Spacedog . The other is from Listening Center, the work of  New York based composer, David Mason. This single will also feature a Listening Centre remix by Pye Corner Audio.
 
Until then you can enjoy the excellent new Listening Centre album, Example One, DL only at the moment from iTunes, Amazon and Bandcamp.
 

Sleep Games due 19th October

 
Sleep Games is the new album from the latest Ghost Box recruit Pye Corner Audio. There’s echoes of John Carpenter, Italo horror soundtracks and a kind of post rave meltdown in PCA’s submerged disco and spectral electronics. Something of a new sound to the world of Ghost Box but at the same time its an uncannily perfect fit.

It’ll be available on the 19th October on Vinyl, CD and Download. More info and pre-order details here and on the Ghost Box website soon but meanwhile here are some clips to whet your appetite.

Study Series 08: “Inversions”

In the next single in the Study Series, The Advisory Circle cover Wildpsot, a tune taken from the first Belbury Poly album, The Willows and Belbury Poly re-imagine a more recent Advisory Circle piece called Now Ends the Beginning. The results are bright, light and naggingly familiar.

“Buying one of its releases feels like stepping into another world” The Guardian

“...what's most impressive about Ghost Box is the aesthetic consistency and sheer quality of the material, recalling the heydays of labels such as Factory, 4AD and Warp.” Quietus

“...some of the most delightful electronica to arise in Britain since Aphex Twin, the Black Dog and Global Communication.” The Sunday Times
