“Jon Brooks conjures up a mood of eerie counter-factual sci-fi dread for a parallel 70s Britain.”
MOJO
“Boards Of Canada style meldings of the cosmic and the rustic.”

UNCUT
“…another beautifully crafted voyage into electronic music’s substrata.”
QUIETUS

 

“Sleep Games is everything fans of both the artist and label could have hoped for.”
DROWNED IN SOUND
“… an M1 retread of Autobahn undone by the spectre of sleep.”

MOJO
“…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.

UNCUT

 

“…a completely immersive experience – it is impossible to skip a track – and a fine achievement.” 
QUIETUS
“So much of what we love about Ghost Box is encapsulated here, on this supremely evocative piece of psychogeographic storytelling”

ELECTRONIC SOUND
“Hymnal synths, pagan piping and hushed chorals act like a series of mantras to highlight the narrative.”

CAUGHT BY THE RIVER
