- In A Moment... Ghost Box by Various
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 01 October 2015This Ghostbox compilation is an absolutely essential purchase for fans of the label’s ability to distil the ’70s early synth analogue pioneering into modern day compositions and marry it to an incredibly distinctive art aesthetic. True, I like to mock Phil and co’s love for this label by repeatedly offering up the joke of "this is what the future sounded like in 1975 when we would have moving footpaths and a robot would cook your tea." Yet it’s this cozy aesthetic that is the basis for the fandom the label generates especially amongst a breed of people who are able to recall the theme tune to ‘Music Box’ with more clarity than they can what they had for breakfast that day. The other thing that makes ‘Ghost Box’ a winner is that you know what you are getting. It’s not eclectic but it has variation of a pretty firm set of ideas. If you like The Advisory Circle’s perky electronic instrumental ‘Escape Lane’ then you are going to pretty much enjoy everything else here yet it never actually sounds ’samey’ as such. Belbury Poly for example use a folky sample which repeats disorientatingly around cut and chopped library sounds, The Soundcarriers are more song based yet still sound like late '60s harmony psych being played on a record player attached to a roller coaster. Other names crop up but the Focus Group, the Advisory Circle and Belbury Poly dominate. That doesn’t stop this from being a thrilling ride. You know Ghost Box have invented something good when bands and labels everywhere are copying or watering down its aesthetic. Get in on the ground floor.
