Also gratefully received from Trunk Records, Classroom Projects is a magical compilation of 60’s and 70’s school records. These gems are much beloved by some of the longest serving Ghost Box artists and are in evidence here and there in their back catalogue. Fans of the Toys and Techniques blog will love this strangely beguiling selection ranging from the light and folksy to the darkest avant garde. Naturally enough Ghost Box are all over this one, its remastered by Jon “Advisory Circle” Brooks and cover art is by Julian “Focus Group” House. Available now with preview clips in the Trunk Shop, CD and DL only (the LPs are sadly all gone by now).
The concluding single of Ghost Box’s Study Series is due for release on 16th October. Belbury Poly collaborate with Brighton based cabaret electronics trio, Spacedog on two tracks that explore their overlapping areas of interest. The results are haunted by Jenny Angliss’s mannered vocals, Sarah Angliss’s elegant theremin and electronics and Jim Jupp’s dusty analogue synths.
It has the usual luxurious Julian House designed packaging and comes in heavyweight vinyl. Available on 7″ or download, PRE-ORDER NOW from the Ghost Box shop. (Ghost Box shop customers ordering the 7″ will be entitled to a free download version on the release date.)
