A project focussed on the sharing and supporting of underexposed new music, A Lonely Ghost Burning aims to exist in the interests of listeners and artists alike. Discovery. Community. Honesty. Pleasantness.
Carefully curated and free to download, our compilations aim to serve, quite simply, as an introduction into the new albums, EPs and demos that we like.
Latest: Vol. 4 (008)
A minor name change (from 'Alt/Punk') to better represent the breadth of styles covered by the series, Vol. 4 features tracks by; Leggy / Varsity / The Daddyo's / Whitebridge / Father Mountain / Iris / Janelane / Mercury Girls / Great Grandpa / Dunes / Blonder.
Quiet and loud, sparse and busy, electronic and experimental, the Oneiric Escapism series is a mix of atmospheric delights, each of its tracks, and the records they come from, capable of transporting the listener into another time or place. Perhaps even both.
In-depth and conducted with genuine interest, our interviews strive to explore the character, hopes, fears, motivations and creative process of the person behind the artistry, providing a humanistic rather than consumerist insight into the work they produce.
'It’s [Oneiric Escapism Vol. 1] the same kind of escape I find when I listen to This Will Destroy You, or Cliff Martinez’ Drive soundtrack, and the compilation is just as well selected as the latter, at times quite similar to one of my favourite film scores.'
'... the Beautiful Songwriting compilation is well worth a look as well, especially if you’re a fan of slow, haunting, mostly-acoustic tracks that rely mainly on a great voice above all else. Normally I’d consider ‘beautiful’ in a compilation title a possible over exaggeration, but it’s wholly fitting in this case...'
'I didn’t know any of the artists on the album [Beautiful Songwriting Vol. 3], but I loved every single song... They [the voices] were soft and combined with the guitar in the songs, it made me feel as if I was in heaven... I could listen to it all day.'
