Belbury Poly Returns With The Belbury Tales

Inspired by the Middle Ages, the supernatural and both physical and spiritual pilgrimage

On 24th February, The Belbury Tales, the new album by Belbury Poly, will come out. Jim Jupp, co-founder of the Ghost Box imprint, maintains his usual sound - though it does sound more organic than we're used to. The Briton collaborated with Jim Musgrave on drums and Christopher Budd on bass, as well as playing some instruments himself - such as guitar, melodica, sitar, ocarina and a variety of electronic keyboards and synths. The result sounds like something close to prog-rock, without losing the projects trademark timbre, much in debt with library music and spacey proto-electronica.

As usual with Jupp, the record has a strong conceptual component: The Belbury Tales “takes in medievalism, the supernatural, childhood, the re-invention of the past, initiation and pilgrimage (both spiritual and physical).” If you want to find out what that means, listen to the advance track below.
