Christ Cathexis Motion Picture Soundtrack
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 12 October 2012
Phil is chuntering away in the corner saying Boards of Canada over and over again. Okay then I’ll put him out of his misery. Christ. do, indeed sound a lot like Boards of Canada. This collaboration with Swedish filmmaker Stefan Larsson begins with two tracks of eerie, ‘70s radiophonic-inspired beatless electronica, sounding like some soundtrack to some tv documentary about space or something
Four tunes in the beats arrive and they are beautifully fleet of foot, sitting in perfectly with droning, shifting synths. ‘Need Between the Station’ matches soft synths and strange disembodied voices culminating in thumping beats driving the thing along. It has to be said again, Boards of Canada (lead Christ. person and Benbecula head Chris H was once in them for flip’s sake) but it’s beautifully realised, eerie spacey electronica, highly addictive if sedative but a gorgeous journey nonetheless.

There are no stacks.
Nope, instead we are basically a kind of crap lo-fi Argos for vinyl records. So, instead of trudging all the way to sunny Holbeck in anticipation of being able to flick through shelf after shelf of releases, please place your orders online first and use our 'In-store collect' option in the checkout.
