I'm not massively into the Ghost Box label aesthetic. Nothing against these guys but if you're gonna be "exploring the musical history of a parallel world" then it'd have to be pretty out-there to work, otherwise it becomes weakly generic. Plenty of the electronic music from our own non-parallel world is enough to be getting on with, making the parallel redundant. If you can't outdo, say Eyeless In Gaza's No Noise, Conrad Schitzler's Blau or the theme tune from the public information film where the kid and his mum go to buy new shoes and nearly get run over by the dad 'in his new car' - then what's the point?

Empty Avenues works though. It's a totally convincing work right from the opening seconds. It used to be that artists became a fading Xerox of themselves, but there's a lot of old dudes these days who are producing stuff as good as (or better than) what they done in their yoof, yeah? The Stones ran out of ideas after mid- 1968. On the other hand Tom Waits, John Cale, Leonard Cohen, Brian Eno, John Foxx - all free bus pass eligible - are producing really great work. David Bowie (another member of the 65+ club) recently released an album that was officially quite good in places.

Empty Avenues echoes some of the themes of Foxx's collaborative (and infinitely brilliant) work with Harold Budd, which explored (without lyrics) a kind of city-space at night psychogeography, with wonderful titles like

Someone online described it as "pastoral electronica"... I found this a very apt description! Don't take me wrong, I love Foxx' Metamatic-era type stuff but I also very much enjoy the title track of The Garden. If you like that, you should try this and prepare to be surprised!

You can hardly move for new John Foxx releases, usually good with this release really standing out. If you are a fan then you will like this.

I've always been interested to hear what John Foxx is up to so I was really pleased to learn of this collaboration with Jon Brooks and Pye Audio Corner, two of my favourite artists. Now having listened to it twice a day for a week all I can say is that it is FANTASTIC! Every track is a stand-out (if that make's sense?) and there's not one filler on here. I just wished they'd do a whole album as this a 24 min EP.
