Autres Directions – Jon Brooks
We have secured the very last of the first pressing of Jon Brook’s (The Advisory Circle) Autres Directions. This beautiful and meditative album for Clay Pipe Music takes inspiration from the French countryside.
The Guest Shop copies are from , a hand numbered limited run of 500 clear vinyl copies. Including a free download code card. Artwork and design by Frances Castle are to the usual high standard of all Clay Pipe releases.
Part episodic series of ethereal soundscape canvasses, part field recording driven hauntological essay, part ambient/prog reinterpretation of the kind of approach the likes of Pink Floyd, Harmonia or Eno were aiming for in the 1970’s – In totality it reflects all of this whilst retaining its own robust identity and makes for a deeply immersive sonic experience that reveals great depth with repeated listens.
The Active Listener.
As impressive and immersive as anything I’ve heard, this collection is a testament to Brooks’ skill as a sound designer and songwriter.
All hold hands and off we go – Keith Seatman
Unsettling pastoral electronica on this 5th CD album from Keith Seatman. He’s joined on two tracks by vocalist Douglas Powell.
Simon Reynold’s Blissblog
Surreal retro analogue visions slide in and out of haunted fever dreams in this woozy, uniquely psychedelic, Radiophonic-flavored concoction that’s suffused with ambivalent subconscious.

A Creak in Time – Howlround
Howlround’s immersive and awe-inspiring soundtrack to a film by Steven McInerney. The heavyweight 180g vinyl LP comes with printed inner sleeve, digital download and a link to stream the full 27 minute film in HD online.
This recording may be Howlround’s most substantial statement to date.
As a rumination on both the firmament and the infinitesimal, A Creak in Time is timeless and singular: a cinematic triumph of style and substance.
Howlround will be performing A Creak in Time at DJ Food’s Further in West Norwood, London, this Saturday night 6th May. Along with a four screen film show and DJ set from Ghost Box records, and film and music from DJ Food.
