Description

The Advisory Circle - From Out Here

The Advisory Circle (aka Jon Brooks) explores darker territory than on 2012’s more pastoral As The Crow Flies. This time Brooks hints at a Wyndham-esque science fiction story, where bucolic English scenery is being manipulated and maybe even artificially generated by bizarre multi-dimensional computer technology.

Brooks’ strong sense of melody and composition is still evident as are his renowned sound design and production skills. Consequently the album is a rich and rewarding experience that subtly showcases a wealth of musical experience. The usual analogue synth sound palette is augmented with found-sound from antique tape reels and Brooks’ ever growing tangle of home built electronics.

The CD and LP come lavishly packaged with artwork by Julian House based on the original concepts for the music. The 180gm LP comes with a free download code, and the download and CD versions include three bonus tracks.

Reviews

From Out Here is another beautifully crafted voyage into electronic music's substrata. In the hands of artists such as The Advisory Circle, the past continues to stretch off into a multitude of futures.
Quietus
More deliciously downbeat analog instrumentals in which TAC’s Jon Brooks conjures up a mood of eerie counter-factual sci-fi
Mojo
From Out Here, in time-honoured Ghost Box form, is spiked with eerie disquiet. Electronic suites like "Vibrations and Waves" are Boards Of Canada style meldings of the cosmic and the rustic, but Brooks’ music displays an artisanal care.
UNCUT
With their time-shifting transmitters and lost-world logo-tones, The Advisory Circle have always represented the purest expression of the Ghost Box sound … Fascinating stuff.
Shindig
Imitators and lesser practitioners now abound in this expanding world, and it's no longer enough for anyone to simply stitch together the familiar tropes to merit attention. Brooks, though, stands out by dint of a nimble melodic touch, compositional sophistication and a broader historical frame of references. This makes From Out Here both satisfying and hard to pin down.
Record Collector
The latest album from Jon Brooks under his The Advisory Circle guise is his best yet. I feel confident in saying this, not only because it’s already received universal praise from others but because there’s something in ‘From Out Here’ that goes further than before.
