Broken Folk by Seatman and Powell in the Belbury Music Shop

Available now, exclusively from the Belbury Music Shop , Broken Folk, a 10″ EP by Seatman and Powell featuring Belbury Poly. The second in a series of limited records made in association with Belbury Music and a variety of associated artists and labels.

It’s a five track EP of collaborations with folk singer Douglas E. Powell selected from Keith Seatman’s last two albums. It opens with a remix of the title track Broken Folk by Ghost Box veterans, Belbury Poly.



Melancholic and subtly psychedelic, these songs are redolent of supernatural short stories and winter afternoons out on English landscapes. In these dark rustic reveries, Seatman builds a dense collage of electronics, fragmented melody and found sound, around which Powell weaves his dreamlike lyrics.

The 10” is pressed on translucent green vinyl with sleeve art by Belbury Poly’s Jim Jupp. It’s released on Seatman’s own label KS Audio and is the second record produced in association with Belbury Music.

The next Belbury Music record will be Jon Brooks’ Applied Music: Science & Nature in March 2019

Autres Directions – Jon Brooks

We have secured the very last of the first pressing of Jon Brook’s (The Advisory Circle) Autres Directions.  This beautiful and meditative album for Clay Pipe Music takes inspiration from the French countryside.

The Guest Shop copies are from , a hand numbered limited run of 500 clear vinyl copies. Including a free download code card.  Artwork and design by Frances Castle are to the usual high standard of all Clay Pipe releases.

Part episodic series of ethereal soundscape canvasses, part field recording driven hauntological essay, part ambient/prog reinterpretation of the kind of approach the likes of Pink Floyd, Harmonia or Eno were aiming for in the 1970’s – In totality it reflects all of this whilst retaining its own robust identity and makes for a deeply immersive sonic experience that reveals great depth with repeated listens.
The Active Listener.

As impressive and immersive as anything I’ve heard, this collection is a testament to Brooks’ skill as a sound designer and songwriter.

All hold hands and off we go – Keith Seatman

Unsettling pastoral electronica on this 5th CD album from Keith Seatman. He’s joined on two tracks by vocalist Douglas Powell.

Excellent stuff…

Surreal retro analogue visions slide in and out of haunted fever dreams in this woozy, uniquely psychedelic, Radiophonic-flavored concoction that’s suffused with ambivalent subconscious.

As a rumination on both the firmament and the infinitesimal, A Creak in Time is timeless and singular: a cinematic triumph of style and substance.
