THE ADVISORY CIRCLE – From Out Here (Ghost Box)

I tried this album from Jon Brooks aka The Advisory Circle, after reading that he sprinkled his electronic compositions with found-sound samples. When it’s done well (Byrne/Eno, Godspeed) it’s a genre that I love, but unfortunately they are few and far between on here. When they do appear they are just tacked on rather than woven into the music, leaving just a bland electronica that I’ve heard too often before.
