Ghost Stations is the brand new album by Marconi Union. Over fourteen years of writing and performing, Marconi Union have continually steadily refined and developed a unique musical identity, gracefully blending together elements of dub, jazz, ambience and electronica within their richly melodic compositions, evoking emotions that set them apart from their peers.
Before making a record Marconi Union usually have a clear idea about its ultimate direction. But this time, they decided to set aside any preconceptions, they spent the last two years experimenting with playing, programming, editing, re-editing, (agreeing and disagreeing) until Ghost Stations naturally evolved. Once the title was decided upon, everything fell into place connecting ideas of abandonment, empty spaces and dereliction.
Marconi Union have never been afraid to accept the challenge of moving forward, trying new things and making new music and with Ghost Stations, their ninth studio album, (which features on two tracks guest musicians Digitonal's Andy Dobson on clarinet and Giorgio Li Calzi on trumpet) their music pushes the boundaries still further yet continues to straddle the worlds of artistic credibility and musical accessibility.
