8/10 Brett 09 September 2010

You know the score with Belbury Poly - Jim Jupp does good shit. On this, one of the latest pair of satisfyingly heavyweight 7"s in this Ghost Box series, he's created a track in honor of the town of Godalming which is full to the brim with that patented feel of very slightly unsettling super English retro-whimsy the label as a whole does so well. It's hard to say whether it sounds more like the music from a schools programme, a dodgy old sitcom or the aural equivalent of reminiscences of wallpaper with horrible colour clashes but it's always fun trying to decide. Baron Mordant should, in theory, make for a perfect partner for the Ghost Box aesthetic and his impression of the quaint Surrey town is also more than a little uncanny, combining a dreamlike ambience with an incessant ticking sound, some Children Talking type shit and a melody which sounds like it was ripped straight from a Buddha Machine, sound quality and all. It doesn't sound much like the recent Mordant Music releases at all but I guess that's what's great about him really, you can never fully know what to expect. Two great tunes, to be sure.
