“Rather than make up his own movies, Jenkins is happy to play the movies that are already running in our heads – and we are happy to let him do it. Every track shows the confidence of someone who knows exactly which buttons to push and when.”
“…hallucinatory ’80s landscape of throbbing sci-fi electronica and luminous synthetic strings built around themes of deep space, suspended animation and sensory deprivation.”
“A somnambulant trip through the cosmic void, Stasis is PCA’s strongest album to date.”
Also available in the Ghost Box shop is this A2 colour art print on textured 160gsm cotton art paper:

Available in the Ghost Box Guest Shop now, this anthology of revised and updated articles from Stephen Prince’s A Year in The Country blog. Including considerations of the work of writers including Rob Young, John Wyndham, Richard Mabey and Mark Fisher, and of musicians and groups The Owl Service, Jane Weaver, Shirley Collins, Broadcast, the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Virginia Astley and Kate Bush, the artists Edward Chell, Jeremy Deller and Barbara Jones and record labels Trunk, Folk Police, Ghost Box and Finders Keepers.
A Year In The Country is a set of year-long journeys through spectral fields; cyclical explorations of an otherly pastoralism, the outer reaches of folk culture and the spectres of hauntology. It is a wandering amongst subculture that draws from the undergrowth of the land. As a project, it has included a website featuring writing, artwork and music which stems from that otherly pastoral/spectral hauntological intertwining, alongside a growing catalogue of album releases.
“…author Prince has pulled together a mass of material culled not only from the website and its associated albums, but also a great deal
more that was written specifically for the book. And the result is spellbinding.”
Dave Thompson, Goldmine
“…the first book of it’s kind to catalogue all these disparate strands, many of which cross over time and space to influence one another.”
“…an essential field guide to a distinct aesthetic that remains loosely defined, like a fluttering night moth that would die if pinned down.”
Ben Graham, Shindig!

The Invisible World of Beautify Junkyards comes out 9th March on LP, CD and DL.
A digital single, Aquarius, taken from the album is available now in the Ghost Box shop & on all download and streaming services.
Lisbon’s Beautify Junkyards effortlessly blend their love of English Acid Folk and Brazilian Tropicalia in a collection of songs that conjure up a warm and verdant faerie world. Delicate acoustic guitars evoke an autumnal England suffused with Iberian heat by other-worldly voices; the ethereal lilt of João Branco Kyron and the warm languor of Rita Vian. The production is tempered with a haunted electronic palette that anchors the band squarely in the world of Ghost Box. Their sound is further enhanced by newest member Helena Espvall ( formerly of Espers) on guitar and cello. With João Moreira on acoustic guitar and synth, Sergue Ra on bass and Antonio Watts on drums they are altogether an astonishingly talented group of people.
The Invisible World… will be the band’s third album and their first for Ghost Box, following on from their Other Voices single in 2016 (available in the Ghost Box shop). With artwork throughout by Julian House, the heavyweight vinyl LP version comes with free download code card. Pre-orders open 16th February.
(The Aquarius promo video was directed by João Pedro Moreira, see the rest of Beautify Junkyards fantastic video channel here.)

The now annual event of a brilliantly baffling Moon Wiring Club release. In the Ghost Box Guest Shop now.
Double CD with artwork by Ian Hodgson.
Here’s what they have to say at Gecophonic Records:
22 tracks of prime MWC tunes that display both rhythmic inventiveness and an ample eerie-ear for uncanny melody. Numerous dancefloor-friendly styles of music are co-opted to coax up a bewilderingly playful mix of synthwave-sinister eerie-step wyrd-funk favourites with ruminative interludes. There’s even a warehouse banger lurking in the shadows and the exact propulsive sound of a ghost processing fog.
Contains 22 tracks of drifty-dream environment and mildly mildewed melody, a sweet-smelling feathering fog of wistfully romantic and unsettling moods, prescribed as a unsettling sleeping draught taken underneath a much-loved lavender blanket. Long-form beat-free compositions conjured up from an alternative 1980s perfume ad nestle charmingly next to a gaslight spirit-web of sly disassociation and mnemonic trickery. Ghostly apparitions wave from far-away lilac window-frames, and the fancy figure forming out of midnight-mist in the apple orchard looks really weirdly familiar.
TANTALISING MEWS could well be the definitive MWC Compact Disc experience ~ 2xCDs packed with 44 tracks derived from one of those streets or lanes that you pass every day but never go down. The architecture doesn’t quite fit in, the trees are different to all the neighbouring ones and it looks a bit too swanky for the postcode.
“…some of Moon Wiring Club’s best work yet. ”
