10/10 Brett Staff review, 22 October 2009
For the last couple of days I've had the phrase 'all circles vanish' reverberating around my mind and it's all the fault of Broadcast and The Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age, in which our titular heroes form like Voltron to produce a postmodern take on classically British psychedelic sounds, from Wicker Man-esque acid folk to the Radiophonic Workshop to those childhood television programs that whisked your imagination away on all kinds of flights of fancy just before teatime. As with Broadcast in general as well as all the Ghost Box crew this is incredibly visual stuff and there's always that constant push and pull between innocence and experience, with naive sounds masking what might appear, in a slightly different light, to be some kind of sinister danger a little bit beyond your understanding. The neat trick of this collaboration is that the bands sound so completely intertwined, at times there's a little more Broadcast (with a handful of tracks you could call actual songs) and at times a little more Focus Group (with the editing and sonic wizardry of the quickfire incidental pieces) but neither ever comes close to completely overshadowing the other and it's a quite fantastic sound that they've conjured together.. So full of mystery and memories. Extra details wise, you've got gorgeous artwork from Julian House and a running time of just under fifty minutes, which is a fair bit more than we were expecting since it was billed as a mini LP kind of affair. If you've not heard either of these bands before and you're feeling a little adventurous you could do much worse than starting here, if you like one of them you're likely to be delighted and if you like both I probably had you at "Hello".
