Keith Seatman - All Hold Hands And Off We Go

New album from purveyor of 1970s hauntology. All Hold Hands And Off We Go takes you down the (now well worn) paths traversed by The Advisory Circle and Belbury Poly. Lots of vintage electronics, ghostly children’s voices and early 70s BBC radiophonic workshop vibes. This album doesn’t push the genre forward in any way but maybe it’s not meant to. Seatman weaves a pleasant, if disturbing spell that fans of Ghost Box will love. While it’s a well-executed album, the genre is flooded with people doing this now and an uncharitable view would be that it’s all starting to sound the same.
