Hi, would love Crumbling Ghost to be considered entry into the archives!
 
London based 5 piece, mixing folk, prog, kraut rock and doom. Self titled debut album just released through Withered Hand Records.
 
Full songs can be found for streaming on the bands blog: http://crumblingghost.blogspot.com/ or at http://witheredhandrecords.blogspot.com/p/crumbling-ghost.html
 
Album available through most online outlets including itunes/amazon and at the Withered Hand Records store: http://witheredhandrecords.blogspot.com/
 
Review extracts:
 
The Sleeping Shamen
In the press release they liken themselves to Pentangle, Sleep, and Electric Wizard. After hearing the album I am convinced the cited influences reflect the band's tastes rather than directing listeners to bands with applicable commonalities, instead I would point those people looking for similarities in the direction of kraut-rock monsters, Can, Amon Duul II, or closer to home Comus, Tea and Symphony, and Mark Bolan's Tyrannosaurus Rex, believing these evoke less typical and yet more exciting and accurate comparisons... Bloody superb stuff!!
 
 
Chybucca Sounds
Unique is a word that is often overused in the world of music journalism, as a lazy, throwaway description; however, Crumbling Ghost’s gem of a debut is just that. Relying as much on the folk baroque overtures of Pentangle as the feedback blasts of the Melvins... It could be a while before this uniqueness is emulated... Recommended

Sounds like a good candidate for psych/space, or maybe heavy. I'll alert the the psych team.
