Ghost Box is a record label for a group of artists exploring the musical history of a parallel world. Listen to clips from our catalogue or read what the press say.

From Out Here - The Advisory Circle

The new album from the Advisory circle,From Out Here, is available on LP, CD and download Available in our shop right now.

Exploring darker territory than 2012’s more pastoral As The Crow Flies, The Advisory Circle hint at a Wyndham-esque science fiction story, where bucolic English scenery is being manipulated and maybe even artificially generated by bizarre multi-dimensional computer technology.

Jon Brooks’ strong sense of melody and composition is still evident as is his renowned sound design and production skill. All of which make this a rich and rewarding experience.

Other Voices 02 - The Listening Center

Listening Center return to Ghost Box with another 45. The second in the Other Voices series, in which David Mason puts his analogue electronics to work on two powerfully melodic pieces. Drawing on the classic library-esque, music for schools and colleges sounds that inspired Ghost Box at its very beginnings.

Available in our shop now on a super heavyweight little chunk of vinyl or on download.

Sleep Games

Sleep Games is the new album from Pye Corner Audio the most recent addition to the Ghost Box roster. There's echoes of John Carpenter, Italo horror soundtracks and a kind of post rave meltdown in PCA's submerged disco and spectral electronics.

14th March'12

Available now on CD,LP & DL, but very few vinyl copies are left world wide. Here's what the press have said:

...a beautiful, eerie thing - a piped gateway to false memories of a time when the benevolent nation state commissioned young men to re-score English folk songs with government issue analogue synthesisers.
Mojo

The overall effect is disorientating and brilliant, the past re-created in a nostalgic fug, stabs of sincerity slashing through superficial veils of irony. These tales are both satirical social critiques and lost-world laments.
Sunday Times

Imagine a combination of The Incredible String Band and Boards of Canada and you won’t be far off....The Belbury Tales is infused with a deep vein of paranoia, a palpable fear, an attempt to reconcile the imminent unknown (evoking a reimagined or never experienced past).
BBC Music Review

A cunning mix of 1980s TV, addled Prog folk and science fiction, a very literary music.
Wire

The Belbury Tales is stranded somewhere between the abstract work of Jupp's past and the fuller sound of the live instrumentation he is applying, making this feel like his most pleasingly open-ended release so far.
Pichfork

...one of the most rewarding and fully realised projects in the Ghost Box catalogue and that’s high praise indeed.
FACT Magazine

Belbury Poly (Jim Jupp)’s fourth LP is one of his most multiplex; augmenting his sparse synth blueprints with outside musicians allows Jupp to wander ever deeper into the catacombs of his mind.
Record Collector Magazine

Weird analogue synths? Rural symbolism? Artwork like a John Wyndham paperback? If you’re into all three then The Belbury Tales is Christmas...Nostalgia doesn’t often feel as good as this. Prepare to feel both spooked and studious.
Drowned in Sound

Earlier today we received the tragic news that Trish Keenan of Broadcast passed away in hospital following a long battle with pneumonia. All of the artists at Ghost Box would like to express their deepest sympathies to Trish's family and to James.

Broadcast are our central and primary influence and Trish's passing leaves an immense gap in our world, we owe more than we can say to her friendship and support over the years.

An enormously talented, generous and beautiful visionary has gone on ahead to see the Summerland.

Warp Records have made a
statement and we'd like to reiterate their request for the proper respect of the privacy of Trish's family and friends.
