Children of Alice (James & Roj from Broadcast, Julian House)


#1

Been announced by Warp.


#2

Well that’s exciting isn’t it.


#3

I can confirm, yes, it is exciting.


#4

Indeed. The clips sound very witch cult to me, but then they were probably going to without Trish’s vocals. Really good to see he feels ready to record again - it must be really hard to bring yourself to record without your other creative half.


#5

I wonder why it’s being released on Warp rather than Ghost Box.


#6

Bump!

I really like this album, like Witch Cults… it’s a compelling, detailed listen. A thrillingly disoriented, haunted collage of sounds – different things sneak up to your attention with each new listen and all that jazz.

One thing I want to say though, is that I have to wait until the house is empty if I want to listen to it through speakers instead of through my headphones because of a particularly strange part of track 3.


#7

I’ve not heard it yet, and I’ve been dying to hear it, and your subtle hint about track 3 has made things particularly irresistible. Please tell me more! Or is this one of those “when it happens you’ll know” things?


#8

I think you’ll know when you hear it but I’ll spoiler tag it anyway

human voices that sound kind of moany and a kind of ‘spanking’ sample


#9

Oh I see. NSFW.


#10

‘spank’ remains an excellent word. Only surprised that BBC’s ‘hit’ spy drama SS-GB doesn’t have a character called Standartenfuhrer Spank.


#11

belatedly discovered this. excellent.
