• Stream: Deadman’s Ghost – Trip Switch Down

    Belfast producer and musician Jason Mills aka Deadman’s Ghost has returned with ‘Trip Switch Down’, a track featured in the trailer for this year’s Belfast Film Festival. Also set to feature as the opening track of a new Deadman’s Ghost EP set for release later this year, the track – which unfurls from drifting ambient electronica to full-blown, wonderfully layered Technicolour -was engineered in collaboration with David Baxter, who programmed the beats and had a hand in the overall production. The guitars and ebow drones that colour the track were largely recorded by Simon Mateer at MFR Recordings. Belfast Film festival runs…

  • Video Premiere: Deadman’s Ghost – Trepanner

    The latest taken from his stellar third album, Hypocritical Oath, ‘Trepanner’ by Belfast musician and producer Jason Mills AKA Deadman’s Ghost now comes accompanied with visuals co-produced by Mills and collaborator Ben Jones. Shot in Berlin and Belfast, the video – which very nicely frames the track’s disembodied ambient noise – features a man a man stalked by a malevolent entity who takes drastic measures to escape. The last minute or so here is quite something. Have a first look at the visuals below. Re-visit Hypocritical Oath here.

  • Deadman’s Ghost – Hypocritical Oath

    Jason Mills, better known as Deadman’s Ghost, recently dropped his third album Hypocritical Oath, an eccentric, eight-track collection of prismatic experimentation. The Belfast native inventively fuses together electronic, folk and synth elements, creating a sound that’s intoxicating, honest and thought provoking. The intimate album comes as a follow up to 2012’s The Broken Zoetrope. It takes the listener on a sonic journey of discovery, delving into new territory and overshadowing his previous releases. The multi-instrumentalist’s music appears to have become much more complex and this album demonstrates his growth, creativity and experimental brilliance as a musician. ‘Ogham Script’ serves as…

  • Premiere: Deadman’s Ghost – Antidote

    Shot at various scenic locations in Northern Ireland including the Belfast hills, Lough Shannagh in the Mournes and Gobbins Path, the video for ‘Antidote’ by Belfast musician, producer and DJ Jason Mills AKA Deadman’s Ghost is a fitting accompaniment to a song that grasps forth in attempt to move on from old habits, thoughts and attachment. A highlight from Deadman Ghost’s third album Hypocritical Oath, which is out now via Ephem Aural, you can have a first look at Mills and Ben Jones’ video for the single below.

  • Stream: Deadman’s Ghost – Unsaid

    Back in April we shared ‘Insula’, a new cut from Belfast musician and producer Jason Mills AKA Deadman’s Ghost. Betraying some sonic lineage to the likes of Beak> and Tortoise, it promised the unravelling of new territory and – we hoped – some new material from the multi-instrumentalist artist. Now, seven months on, Mills has just announced details of his forthcoming third full-length release, Hypocritical Oath, which promises to be an album in which “dark tales, ambient swells, field recordings, ominous electronics and banjo twangs form part of a sonic tapestry”. Featuring additional production by David Baxter, Barry Lynn and Simon…

  • Stream: Deadman’s Ghost – Insula

    Previously known as Deadman, Belfast producer Jason Mills AKA Deadman’s Ghost comfortably established himself as one of the country’s most ambitious and idiosyncratic musicians with his debut LP, The Broken Zoetrope. Drawing comparisons to the likes of Beck and David Holmes, it tapped into a magnificent mid-point between expansive post-rock terrain and exquisite electronic soundscapes. Very much a return worth waiting for, his new track ‘Insula’ instantly lured us to a realm in which Beak> and Tortoise got together to jam ‘All I Need’ by Radiohead. The result was delightful.

  • The Thin Air 1st Birthday/No Tomorrow #2: We Cut Corners, Liza Flume & Deadman’s Ghost @ Voodoo Belfast

    Twelve most excellent months in, we celebrate our very first birthday – to the day, no less – on Saturday, May 3 at Belfast’s Voodoo at the second ever outing of our gig/club night, No Tomorrow. Headlining on the night are We Cut Corners (pictured), the Dublin indie-rock duo whose new second album, Think Nothing, is set to see them elevated to the highest echelons of worship-worthy fanboyery (and, indeed, -girlery). Brilliantly urgent and idiosyncratic in equal proportion, recent singles ‘YKK’, ‘Best Friend’ and ‘Every Thief’ are go-to tracks to heed their mastery. Main support on the night comes from Australian…
