These charming, woozy recordings by Leeds producer Joshua Hughes first circulated on a Boards Of Canada forum in 2017, but have now been polished for official release. Tracks like ‘Twin Lakes’ and ‘Cold Man’ certainly boast the same fuzzy, frosted-glass hum of radiophonica that epitomised early Boards’ albums, and the title track has an affectingly desolate feel – the ambience of open moorland and gloriously bleak Yorkshire vistas. Elsewhere, chattering beats combine with drifting field recordings that, one suspects, may have been made in an actual field.
