Julian House returns to his Focus Group project following a four-year hiatus. Stop-Motion Happening continues the dreamlike web of radiophonic releases from PYE Corner Audio, Belbury Poly, Broadcast & The Advisory Circle that have made his co-run Ghost Box imprint such a staple in the minds and collections of the hauntology heavy heads.

Made up of a whopping great 25 tracks in total, Stop-Motion Happening takes in a variety of summer isle sounds that range from natural landscape folk passages to fizzing electronic blips and bloops through sampled jazz echoes. A warm sense of nostalgia that is ever present in The Focus Group's work hangs around in the ether, ringing through the wood like structure with a hazy sense of psychedelia that has been filtered through a pooling knowledge of Italian horror movies and Eastern European animation.

A sterling example of why we and so many others continue to swoon repeatedly for the Ghost Box sound.
