Choir of Young Believers
This Is For The White In Your Eyes

On the surface of it, This Is For The White In Your Eyes seems to indicate it will be like any amount of Scandinavian indie-pop that has occasionally wrecked the charts over the last decade. But Jannis Joya Makrigiannis and his Choir of Young Believers give everything on their debut album a sense of genuine and well-observed grandiosity. 

Galcher Lustwerk
Information

New York producer and DJ Galcher Lustwerk releases his first album for Ghostly International. Ever since his first mixtapes over five years ago, Galcher has worked a consistent line in after-hours electronica. Information adds more live percussion to the mix, as well as smatterings of jazz, but his soulful, abstract musings are still present.

Telefon Tel Aviv
Dreams Are Not Enough

Telefon Tel Aviv's 2001 era album Fahrenheit Fair Enough was to these ears one of the greatest electronic albums of the era. Two further albums followed but following the death of founder member Charlie Cooper in 2009  Telefon Tel Aviv ceased trading. Now over a decade later, surviving member Josh Eustis has re-ignited the project for a long awaited fourth album. If it's even half as good as that debut then we are all in for a treat.

Shigeto
Versions EP

Shitego's EP 'Versions' is a testament to casting off the shackles of modern production methods, all click-tracks and MIDI, in order to create something organic and real. Compare the coarse, crayon sketch on the cover to other modern jazz records' hyper-digital renders and you may get a sense of this record's immediacy. FFO Vulfpeck and Sons of Kemet.

Tycho
Dive

Dive is the first record released by Tycho on ‘Ghostly International’ and the first record to have a live backing band. Continuing on from Scott Hanson’s obvious delve into the world of melodic ambience and chillwave, this album is the ten-track release that the genres were so desperately needing. Available on Vinyl double LP.

Steve Hauschildt
Nonlin

Steve Hauschildt has been long admired in these parts, firstly for his work with experimental electronic trio Emeralds and then as a solo artist with classic albums such as Where All Is Fled and Strands. His new album, Nonlin, is his sixth and sees him evolve yet further. Another classic? We shall see, but the chances are good.

HTRK
Venus In Leo

Astrology's hot in 2019. 'Venus In Leo' is the fourth album from HTRK, the minimal electronic duo. Theirs is a sound that is finds an intense sadness in mundanity, that is communicated with minimal beats now freed from their noisy shells. As a Leo, I should probably have something to say about the album title. Unfortunately I know literally nothing about astrology.

Com Truise
Persuasion System

Los Angeles based Com Truise returns to Ghostly International for his follow up to 2017’s Iteration. This mini LP see the producer take a re-approach to his craft, taking a fresh palette of sounds and techniques whilst retaining his signature 80s/VHS warmth, and of course the Linn Drum is still highly prevalent.

The Sight Below
Glider 10

In 2008, The Sight Below's Rafael Anton Irisarri had the extremely good idea of creating a dub techno album using shoegaze guitars. The result is Glider, an album of such ethereal and intense atmosphere that you could easily find yourself dissolving. Reissued for its 10th anniversary by the very apt Ghostly.

Shigeto
Weighted

As the snow flies on a cold and grey Chicago mornin', a poor little baby child is born - in Shigeto. That’s pretty much where the similarities with Elvis end for the Detroit artist, mind. On Weighted, Shigeto comes through with a selection of classic Midwest club tackle. ‘Fight Club’ and ‘Ooh Ooh’ are terse 808 techno, while the Ian Fink-featuring ‘The Line Up’ is closer to Moodymann’s Mahogani Music. Motor city royalty Andres rounds the EP out with a remix.

Geotic
Traversa

Blissful indie-techno producer Geotic, alias of Will Wiesenfield (better-known as Baths), with another album packed with soulful and warm beats. Geotic's albums so far have contained dance music for dancing by yourself, for staring out of train windows: dance for when you're okay with being by yourself. And based on first single Gondolier, Traversa will continue that trend.
  • Label(s):
  • Ghostly International

Beacon
Gravity Pairs

The duo that is Beacon have changed it up a little from their previous two albums, setting out to create songs from moment one rather than focusing on loop-driven compositions. So should we say Beacon have gone pop? Well, perhaps a bit, but that would be to undermine the impressive attention to detail that has gone into the sound and textures of Gravity Pairs’ tracks. On Ghostly.

Matthew Dear
Bunny

Dear Matthew, thanks for releasing a new album. I don't know what it sounds like yet. I'm told that it's kinda moody and ominous which would certainly offset the fact that it's named Bunny, because rabbits are incredibly cute. I've also heard that Tegan and Sara feature on a track, which is easily the best news I've had all year. I'm sure this record will speak to your need to make a myriad different sounds all the time and in good avant-pop ways. Thanks XOX Norman.

Helios
Veriditas

Keith Kenniff returns under his Helios alias to bestow upon us a new album of ambient electronica. His modus operandi -- to work quietly, in the suburbs in the dead of night -- is reflected in the simple, serene calm of his music. It's a method that has served Kenniff well over the last decade or so of production; unhurried, using just the one mini-cassette tape machine for recording. Kenniff subscribes to Hildegard von Bingen's belief in "the greening power of the divine," and it shows in his soothing and centring work. Veriditas is a CD / LP on Ghostly.

Steve Hauschildt
Dissolvi

Former Emeralds synth wizard Steve Hauschildt returns with 'Dissolvi' the name taken from the latin phrase cupio dissolvi, meaning "I wish to be dissolved". Let's hope Steve isn't dissolved any time soon as here he presents another example of his work which contains techno pulses, synth haze, the voice of Julianna Barwick. 

Mary Lattimore
Hundreds of Days

Will the good times never cease? Philly harp legend Mary Lattimore continues her endless slew of good releases with Hundreds of Days, her second for Ghostly. Exploring the alien feeling that gets pronounced when you leave home, her plucks offer microcosmic and resonant ways to work your way through unknown spaces.

Dabrye
Three / Three

It has taken Todd Mullinix a little longer than expected to complete the trio of Dabrye albums begun with 2001’s One/Three, but he’s got there in the end. To make up for the wait the Ann Arbor producer serves up near-twenty tracks of envelope-pushing hip-hop. His first two LPs influenced the likes of Flying Lotus, Harry Fraud and Paul White, and the video-game clatter of Three/Three bangers ‘The Appetite’ and ‘Emancipation’ shows Mullinix can still kick it. The guest features read like a who’s-who of Real Rap Guys - Ghostface, Danny Brown, Guilty Simpson, you get the idea.

Dabrye
One / Three

Ghostly International serve up a remastered version of Dabrye’s seminal 2001 One/Three to drop concurrently with the producer’s new LP Three/Three. Often cited as one of the most important beat-tapes of the early millennium, One/Three offers so much more than mere Dilla tributes. Todd Mullinix’s background in IDM and jungle means he pays great attention to detail on the ten tracks here, while the sounds of the producer’s native Michigan get a bit of grit in One/Three’s eye.

Dabrye
Instrmntl

The third track from this record (No Child Of God) was, apparently, on a mac & cheese 'commercial' in 2015. Kind of cool being as this record was released in the early 2000's when the hip-hop scene was well and truly in full swing. Instrmntl by Dabrye has been granted a reissued from the mighty powers that be on Ghostly and is available on vinyl LP.

Starchild & The New Romantic
Language

Starchild's Brandon Cook is wonderfully unashamed about his influences: Prince, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson. This impeccably produced pop record could easily be an 80s gem. It stays true to the style but carries important, topical messages of marginalisation and the difficulties of growing up within institutionalised adversity.

Shigeto
The New Monday

Detroit producer Shigeto returns to Ghostly International with his fourth full length album The New Monday. After numerous releases experimenting with abstracted downtempo hip hop glitching, Shigeto has looked closer to home and drawn on a more dance floor focus, because, Detroit. Features collaborations with ZelooperZ, Kaleena Zanders and Silas Green

Com Truise
Iteration

As far as underground East-coast electronic producers go, very few are currently enjoying a greater purple patch than Com Truise. Amongst his lustrous beasts and glugging basslines, is a geniune soulfulness that isnt' easy to find within the hoards of modern day electronica. Iteration is his latest slice of gold.

Geotic
Abysma

Many of Geotic’s past releases have tended towards tender ambient drone, but Abysma is a dance music record. That said, Geotic (aka Will Wiesenfeld of Baths) makes clear that this is dance music as intimate, at-home experience with a gentle lift to it. With Will’s vocals turning some of these tracks into full-on songs, Abysma is a lovely listen. On Ghostly International.

Jacaszek
Kwiaty

With four years since his last solo full length, polish electroacoustic producer Jacaszek moves to big boys Ghostly International with Kwiaty. Incredible acoustic sounds sampled, cut and processed to the Nth degree create a collage of space and place. Based around a book of 17th century poems and featuring the vocals of Hania Malarowska from Hanimal. Melancholic joy.

  • Ghostly International

Moiré
No Future

With his releases on R&S, Ninja Tune, and Werk Discs London based producer Moiré has always pushed left of centre in techno production, swapping straight fours for screwed and off kilter beats that mysteriously achieve the same rhythm. On his latest full length through Ghostly International he pushes further into IDM beat work territories, working with MC DRS and “grime poet” James Massiah.

Tycho
Epoch

Epoch is the final chapter in Tycho’s trilogy of ridiculously accessible indietronica albums. Moving on from Dive, through Awake, the Californian has reached new heights in upbeat, optimistic head-bobbing songs that float on spacey synthesizers and tightly and perfectly delayed guitars. Epoch, however, features real drums played by a real drummer, lending Tycho’s songs an extra touch of tangibility.
  • Label(s):
  • Ghostly International

Tycho
Awake Remixes

Tycho’s Awake was a perfect distillation of the group’s melodic electro-rock, mixing krautrock textures and dense guitars. On this vinyl LP remix album all those lush instrumentals are rebuilt by an exciting range of producers. Com Truise beefs up Awake for the dancefloor, Bibio goes avant-lounge and all the collaborators add unique touches to wonderful tunes.

Xeno & Oaklander
Topiary

Fifth album of analogue-synthesised electro-pop songcraft from this Brooklyn duo. Xeno & Oaklander’s songs are stately and aloof in that classic distant-stare synth-pop way: this could easily be a lost find from a central European country in the late 80’s, though it was recorded in the Tom Tom Club(!)’s studio in the States. Sleeve artwork by the band’s own Liz Wendelbo. On Ghostly International.

Beacon
Escapements

Beacon are a pair of New Yorkers, crafting sleek electro-pop with a lithe twist. For Escapements, their second album, they’ve enlisted extra help from Rory O’Connor, the drummer from Tycho, bringing some live percussion into the electronic mix. Released by the Ghostly International label.

Choir of Young Believers
Grasque

Choir Of Young Believers have followed up the stately focus previous album Rhine Gold with a rather different prospect: the expansive, explorative Grasque. Big, bright R&B pop songs are the order of the day, carried across with all sorts of (often fairly experimental) textures. Out on Ghostly International.

Tycho
Awake

Tycho is absolutely huge and even bigger now that he's started with the singing (see new album for details). This 2014 album caused a furore amongst our customers as to whether its any good or not. We'll leave that for you to decided save to say that if you like your dreamy soundscapes like Ulrich Schnauss, M83 or U2 without the singing then he'll be right up your alleyway.
