Hauntology

    Wasn't sure whether to post in this forum or the Electronic music one.

    Anyway, the type of music I'm talking about is pioneered by the Ghost Box label.
    https://ghostbox.co.uk/

    Sometimes called Hauntology music, or British Cosmic Music (references to kosmische?).

    I'm talking about the likes of:

    Pye Corner Audio
    Cavern of Anti Matter (the guy from Stereolab)
    Belbury Poly (cofounder of Ghost Box)

    The musical feel is like Dr. Who meets Tomorrow's World meets the Wickerman meets John Carpenter.
    Very English.

    Spooky synthesiser music which is both retro and futuristic at the same time.
    Hypnotic, but also pastoral and folksy at times.
    Reminiscent of 1970's Progrock even.

    Just checking to see if anyone here is in to the same subgenre, and would like to share similar.
