Ghostly Swim

Ghostly International teams up with Adult Swim to create a kickass compilation of music and art. It contains 19 songs from a bunch of artists from their label including Matthew Dear, Ben Benjamin, Milosh, Tycho, FLYamSAM (Flying Lotus + SAMIYAM), and more. Best part of all, it's free and available here.

Record label Ghostly International and modern cult classic programmers [Adult Swim] have paired up for a compilation of new music and art.

A genre-busting 19-song collection, stretching the entire Ghostly International galaxy, Ghostly Swim explores the Avant-Pop style that the Ann Arbor/New York City label has been been championing for the past 9 years. Ghostly Swim features artists like Matthew Dear, Dabrye, Tycho and Aeroc and features new signings like UK cult band The Chap and NYC producer Michna.

The free collection also includes favorite friends of the label like School Of Seven Bells, and Detroit’s Deastro, Milosh (Plug Research), FLYamSAM (Warp’s Flying Lotus and SAMIYAM), and Dark Party (Mush). Along with the new music, BoyCatBird (Ghostly’s mascots) make their animated debut in the awesome “City Suckers” video by Daniel Garcia/Superfi.

That's not all! They're doing a little tour and stopping by LA to give a taste of their own music.
