Paul Weller In Another Room Not sure if we'll see any of this one, for now click the Notify me button, just in case! Ghost Box is very proud to present a new EP by Paul Weller. The eclecticism of his career goes without saying and in Ghost Box Weller finds the perfect home to explore his interest in experimental tape music and early electronics. The four tracks here though are more than just experiments. Tape manipulation, field recordings and instrumental passages are artfully arranged to create a gently uncanny and psychedelic atmosphere. During the final piece Rejoice the abstraction starts to resolve into a more conventional and joyful group sound. No sooner has the melody taken shape when it suddenly collapses, deepening the magic and mystery of the whole work. In part this is musique concre?te in the tradition of Pierre Schaeffer. The “sonic art” of Trevor Wishart being perhaps a closer parallel. Unlike the mid-century pioneers of avant garde music, Weller introduces subtle melodic elements and ghostly fragments of song. Pianos drift in from next-door rooms with an atmosphere not unlike the work of Virginia Astley. The resulting impression is melancholy and reflective with a dreamlike sense of loss. Ghost Box

Paul Weller Other Aspects, Live At The Royal Festival Hall In October 2018, Paul Weller performed two extraordinary must-see concerts at The Royal Festival Hall with an orchestra. The second of these shows was recorded / filmed and now sees the light of day as a stand-out live album and DVD. “Other Aspects, Live At The Royal Festival Hall” features an eclectic 25 track career spanning set. As well as classics from Paul’s rich back catalogue, the bulk of the critically acclaimed performance features 11 songs from the gorgeous “True Meanings” – Paul’s roundly lauded, no. 2 album which was released last September. The track-listing also includes several tracks from Paul’s days in The Jam, including a radical re-working of “Private Hell” from their 1979 LP “Setting Sons” and a brilliantly realised version of “Boy About Town”. The Style Council get a welcome look-in too with “Have You Ever Had It Blue” and “A Man Of Great Promise”. Other firm solo favourites such as “You Do Something To Me” and “Long Long Road” fit seamlessly into the set. As well as the full concert, the DVD also features a behind-the-scenes mini-documentary with rehearsal footage and interviews. Parlophone CD | LP

Paul Weller A Kind Revolution We've got a handful of A1 posters to give away with the album, you just need to pay a little extra for P&P. The thirteenth solo studio album from the legendary singer songwriter Paul Weller. The gravelly R&B stomp of opening track ‘Woo Sé Mama’ is a peacock-suited nod to Dr John, while ‘Long Long Road’ finds him in familiar blue-eyed balladeering mode. Yet ‘A Kind Revolution’ never stays in one place long enough to be pigeonholed as one thing or the other. For proof of that, you need look no further than his choice of guest stars – perhaps only Weller could coax Robert Wyatt out of retirement for the jazzy ‘She Moves With The Fayre’, then rope in Boy George for the pulsating disco-funk of ‘One Tear’.

Jawbone OST Paul Weller The soundtrack from Paul Weller for the upcoming British film Jawbone. This is the first time Weller has created a score and he keenly jumped on board the project when the film was in it's very early stages all that existed was a script, no cast and no budget. ‘Jawbone: Music From The Film’ is a collection quite unlike anything else from Paul Weller’s extensive discography as you can hear on the album’s sprawling 21-minute opener ‘Jimmy / Blackout’, an experimental sound collage which provides much of the film’s score and underlying mood.

Paul Weller Heavy Soul Reissue of the fourth studio album from Paul Weller. Like Stanley Road before it, Heavy Soul is more about vibe than songs. There are a few sharply written tracks here and there, but what's important is the rootsy, stripped-down atmosphere. Paul Weller's soul and R&B influences reign supreme on Heavy Soul, yet they are filtered through late-'60s psychedelia, blues-rock and prog folk, as he takes songs into extended instrumental jams. LP
