recent revamp of The Advisory Circle's Mind How You Go,
Ghost Box offer an enhanced reissue of their 2004 debut
release, Belbury Poly's Farmer's Angle EP. Jim Jupp's
disquietingly jaunty electro-folk gains additional presence
and clarity in the transition to vinyl, with added interest
in the form of three new tracks. "Your Stories" sound
intriguingly like Lieutenant Pigeon and Jean-Jacques Perrey
hosting a knees-up in the Belbury local, while "Hither and
Yon" is in a similar vein to 2009's From an Ancient Star.
The original EP's Lovecraft homage "Cool Air" has been
replace by "Warm Air", a re-imagining courtesy of The
Advisory Circle. Ghost Box purists may grumble, but as we
have seen, Jon brooks is no slouch when it comes to building
new worlds from old, and the latter's Satie-meets-Monkman
drift makes for a worthy substitute.
