You couldn't accuse The Assembled Minds' Matt Saunders - arguably best known as one half of 4AD outfit Magnetophone - of lacking a clear vision. With sophomore solo set Creaking Haze & Other Rave Ghosts, he claims to have created "techno-Morris-horror", via an aural "investigation into how a '70s British horror movie would sound, if a strange kind of proto-rave dance music had been at the director's disposal". In essence, this manifests itself in piano laden ambient tracks to tease and titillate zombie maypole dancers, discordant dancefloor slow jams peppered with creepy ice cream van chimes, and occasional blasts of loved-up, misty-eyed nostalgia.
