PRE-ORDER THE APPLE TREE BY HINTERMASS

The new album by Hintermass, The Apple Tree is due for release on 18th March and Pre-orders open today in the Ghost Box shop .


Its the first LP from Hintermass following their Study Series single for Ghost Box in 2011. The duo comprises Jon Brooks (The Advisory Circle) and Tim Felton (of Seeland and formerly Broadcast) who come together with an elegantly crafted pastoral pop album. Brooks beautiful production complements Felton's rich vocal perfectly. Catchy songs with electronic and folk sensibilities are balanced by expertly handled abstract sketches and instrumental pieces.



Both artists cite the kosmiche music of Ash-ra and Popul Vuh and their simultaneous re-discovery of the music of Nico as strong influences on the album. The songs also have clear roots in both traditional and psychedelic folk.



Emotionally engaging and nostalgically transportive, ‘The Apple Tree’s golden-hued scenes and sketches should set you up nicely for the returning spring... a bittersweet paean to the half-remembered high summer tryst under the fruit trees that you never had.
Electronic Sound
March 2016

ASSEMBLED MINDS - CREAKING HAZE IN THE GHOST BOX GUEST SHOP


Available in the Ghost Box Guest Shop now. Creaking Haze by Assembled Minds (CD). Its the work of Matt Saunders, formerly one half of  Magn├ętophone (4AD). Its a brilliant distillation of lost nights out and the ghosts of dead raves. Like the sounds in your head the day after, when you're vainly attempting to sleep, but the rhythm won't stop.

This is the debut  on Saunders' own label, Patterned Air, which we understand has some exciting releases ahead.  So make sure you take then opportunity to grab AIR-001 while you can.



Getting plenty of air play on BBC6 from both Gideon Coe and Tom Ravenscroft, it comes lovingly packaged with artwork inserts and a hand tied leather thong.
