A Lonely Ghost Burning is a music discovery space devoted to seeking, sharing and supporting new, under-the-radar releases in the interests of listeners and artists alike. Welcome! Our meticulously curated compilations -- products of a daily search through the brilliantly incessant deluge of new releases on Bandcamp -- run to a weekly schedule (as of October 2018) and are free to stream and download. They come in three series -- Alternative Melodies, Beautiful Songwriting, and Oneiric Escapism -- and aim to be both an introduction to new artists as well as a cohesive, coherent listening experience in their own right. We also conduct in-depth interviews with artists featured on the compilations. These strive to explore the character, hopes, fears, motivations and creative process of the people behind the artistry.
Some very kind, much appreciated people have been known to voice approval of our work, such as NBT Music Radio ranking our Alternative Melodies 6 release at number seventeen in their top 300 album/EP list of 2017. Also...'There’s little here to pull a listener from the experience, no jarring transitions or sudden switches in tempo. Quiet contemplation is encouraged, and the movement from start to finish is sublime, never a misstep.' - Craig Reviews Music (December 2017) 'You do the best interviews and mixes, and I need more.' - @delicatebliss on Twitter (March 2016)
