I'm afraid of no ghosts...

Are you a skeptic when it comes to the supernatural world? This site dispels all the myths, well hopefully. Get acquainted with the spooky one, tag all the places where ghosts have been sighted and share your experiences. It's called ghost tagging. And it's for those who want to avoid them can avoid them, now isn't that useful? Ironically it's the ghost month of the Chinese lunar calendar. Folklore or fiction? You decide.

Daydreaming with... James Lavelle

Dreaming with... takes place over the UK August bank holiday (August 27-30), and is the first in a series of annual festivals which aim to explore the relationship between music and art. Lavelle (aka UNKLE) is curating this first one, and will bring together works from an extensive list of his collaborators over the years, including Warren Du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones (artwork from UNKLE's latest album Where Did The Night Fall shown top), Jonathan Glazer, Futura, Ben Drury, Kai and Sunny, Oswaldo Macia, Nathan Coley, Simon Birch and Jamie Shovlin. Each artist will create a new artwork inspired by music composed for the project by UNKLE, and the music and art will be combined in the gallery space.

John Hillcoat’s video for The Answer starring Ray Winstone.

Saviours and Angels, however, is that rarest of things - a music video (or to be more precise: a short film set to music) that has been thought over as much as the track(s) it showcases, and can be viewed entirely independently, brimming with artistic merit of its own as it is. The three parts, directed by Paul Andrew Wilson, fit together to form a short film triptych that provides a relentlessly bleak look at urban alienation in Britain, in which each segment features an exclusive UNKLE song.

There are also three new UNKLE tracks which are featured can be downloaded for free.

Matthew Dear - Black City

Matthew Dear's latest long player. What's interesting is his third studio release, Ghostly International proudly introduces its newest label release format, the totem. More than a mere limited edition, the totem is a proposal, an entreaty to listeners everywhere to reconsider our relationship to music in the digital era. In producing an object as the embodiment of Black City, Matthew Dear and Ghostly International suggest a new path through which one's physical relationship to an album is again explored.
