Cate Brook’s fifth album as The Advisory Circle. A beautiful and uplifting selection of electronic pieces, inspired by late 70s and early 80s library music. Never descending into parody or obvious re-enactment Brooks is the absolute master in this field.
Two members of Friendly Fires (and also The Pattern Forms) make guest appearances; Ed Macfarlane on vocals on No Way Back, and Edd Gibson co-production on Scuba.
The CD & LP packaging is designed by Julian House. The elegantly simple artwork and typography, reminiscent of 80s photographic manuals and magazines, is rendered on metallic gold foil packaging. This edition, repressed by state51, is specially cut on gold coloured vinyl to match the packaging.
