Review of The Advisory Circle - Other Channels 
 

The Advisory Circle’s debut is the most fully realised expression of the Ghost Box label’s aesthetic to date. Its artists inhabit a half-remembered zone sure to resound with impressionable listeners of a certain age. Clean, cold sounds echo the electronic incidental music of 1970s public-information films and weird children’s television.

Beautifully assembled packaging, by the designer Julian House, suggests some long-abandoned government social experiment. Other Channels uses snatches of speech and fragments of banally beautiful melodies to conjure a vivid suburban nightmare of Mogadon coffee mornings, treacherous frozen ponds and imminent nuclear war that both chills and charms.
