Children Of Alice is the new project from Broadcast's James Cargill, its name a memorial reference to Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures In Wonderland, the favourite book of Cargill's bandmate Trish Keenan, who sadly passed away in 2011. Unsurprisingly, the eponymous record carries immediate similarities to the work of Broadcast - especially their crucial soundtrack work for Peter Strickland's 'Berberian Sound Studio' - with a non-linear fluidity through rich and atmospheric vignettes of folk and electronic soundscapes that hazily lose any sense of beginning or end. Although only four separate tracks, 'Children Of Alice' is 43 minutes of intelligently and intricately woven sound that mesmerizes and entrances, serving as a respectful tribute to the late singer Keenan.
