- Sketches And Spells by The Focus Group
This is a fun recording. Originally a CDr in 2004, it's now since garnered the status of desirable collectors item so GB have seen fit to re-issue it & It's contents of immeasurable delight on a proper mastered format. So the artwork hasn't been tampered with, the bloopy vintage electronic sample collage remains the same. Hints of Radiophonic Workshop, White Noise, bent-out-of-shape 60s kitsch, snippets of a collapsed folk jam & musique concrete all mingle together in a psychedelic aural haze! As always with this Ghost Box stuff, there's a warm nostalgia to be gleaned from immersive listening but also something quite magical and profound from The Focus Group in particular. He truly leads you on a disorientating trippy journey & I, for one, am so grateful that Mr. House was given the opportunity to work with the so, so sadly missed Trish Keenan, alongside James Cargill on that wonderful collaboration. In lieu of brand new stuff, if you've not got this beautifully tangled, eccentric & dreamlike opus then think snappy & get involved!
