Chanctonbury Rings coming 21st June

A new album of poetry, prose, music and song from:
Justin Hopper & Sharron Kraus with Belbury Poly

A spoken word and music project by writer Justin Hopper and folk musician Sharron Kraus. It also features Ghost Box’s own Belbury Poly. Based on live performances of Hopper’s 2017 book The Old Weird Albion , it’s a poetical, autobiographical and psychogeographical account of his experiences at Chanctonbury Ring on the West Sussex Downs.

The album is a blend of folk, electronic music, poetry, prose and environmental sound. Kraus’s electro-acoustic soundscapes and songs interweave with Hopper’s rich, intimate narration. With Belbury Poly contributing music and production throughout and bookending the work with a memorable theme tune.

On LP, CD & Digital. Pre-orders available in the Ghost Box Shop from 10th May. 

An earlier collaboration from 2014 between Justin Hopper and Belbury Poly,  Ley Line, which featured Shirley Collins among others , is available in its entirety here…

PEEL AWAY THE IVY by THE PATTERN FORMS OUT 21st OCTOBER

The debut album from The Pattern Forms, collaborative project between Ed Macfarlane and Edd Gibson of Friendly Fires and Jon Brooks of The Advisory Circle, is due out 21st October 
 

Following on from the Other Voices 03 single in 2015, this is an album that perfectly melds blissful pop with more exploratory electronics, its roots lying in the artists’ shared love of soundtracks and electronic library music of the 70s and 80s. It should appeal to fans of both bands.

On DL, CD, and heavyweight LP, with luxurious packaging designed by Julian House. There’ll also be a special coloured vinyl version exclusive to Rough Trade Records. Pre-orders will open early October.
