Concretism
Dick and Stewart (Original Soundtrack)

'Dick and Stewart' is a series of animated short films, narrated by Julian Barratt, that show a bleak picture of Britain but leave us guessing as to whether this is something we’ve already experienced or something that’s yet to come. Chris Sharp is the man behind Concretism, and he makes Ghost Box-indebted hauntological electronica that's perfectly suited to this dystopian view - he previously made a record centred around the threat of nuclear war, for one thing.
