Have y'all checked out Pye Corner Audio's LP on Ghost Box yet? Sort of a bridge between the Ghost Box house style and something more Goblin- and John Carpenter-influenced. It doesn't have as much of the folk/medieval element you find in Belbury Poly or the Advisory Circle, but it's still wonderfully evocative.

He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

Sleep Games also reminds me a bit of very early Autechre.

Sounds like something for me to throw on while I'm working tomorrow.

That looks positively sane by comparison to the evil 70's stuff I endured.

The fucking wallpaper alone was enough to give me nightmares. I felt like I was the small boy on the tricycle from the Shining.

To think I was saved by these scruffy herberts still amazes me.

In all honesty, the post-psychedelic effect on 70s decor weirds me the fuck out. Drab yet hallucinatory—like an intentional bad trip.

I've located a couple albums and will likely give them a spin today.

It's much more melodic than the other Ghost Box stuff I've heard. Conventional isn't a proper word to use, but it fits into ambient, even ambient pop, more easily than other stuff on the label. Which isn't a criticism at all. It's really quite good.

Hey Gene, there are Scarfolk shirts available now. I had to order this one as it captures so much about me: https://darkbunnytees.com/product/scarfolk-no/

(I've long loved, and taken to heart, the title of George Grosz' memoir, A Little Yes and a Big No. If I need a personal slogan, it's that.)

Awesome! Thanks for the heads up
