Ghostly International


32 shouts

Ann Arbor, Michigan’s Ghostly International was founded in 1999 in Sam Valenti IV’s dorm room at the University of Michigan. Since then, the label has become one of America’s premier channels for forward-thinking music, from Avant-Pop to abstract electronics. Home to artists such as Tadd Mullinix (AKA Dabrye), Mobius Band, Lusine, and Solvent (plus the dance-oriented sub-label Spectral Sound), Ghostly celebrates a diversity of styles that run the electronic gamut.

Ghostly emphasizes the artist behind the machines, the personalities that drive this music. Through its release history, including the acclaimed Disco Nouveau and Idol Tryouts compilations, the label has received praise from critics and music buyers alike. Ghostly International and Spectral Sound focus on a strong visual presence and an eye for the smallest detail, true to their art historical roots. The labels are capable of earning trust across a myriad of styles and incarnations, providing audiences with the complete package.

    Binaural, minimally overdubbed, reverberating delays of acoustic and subtle electric guitars swirling in a fantastic dreamscape; as noise and slow melodies ebb and flow; where an infinity edge of sound, sea and sky mix in a playground of a quiet stroll through a shadowy, sunny, breezy downtown...
