Ghost Box's ongoing collective hallucination reaches the
The sleevenotes to Martin Jenkins' latest research document
playfully refer to a state of 'deja entendu', but though
much is composed of vintage electronic ingredients, its
generic coordinates remain as unfixed as the 'non places' he
aims to evoke in the melancholic, occasionally sinister
silicon suite. "Into The Maze" and "The Mirror Ball Cracked"
are techno composed of dust and drizzle, while "Nostalgia
Pills" and "Chlorine" are woozy synth reveries. Like the
kind of memory-sprites often evoked by Ghost Box releases,
this is music that continually slips away from you even as
you chase down its essence.
