At four months old Ghosting Season’s Far End of the Graveyard EP – four slick tracks of tribal, industrial inflected techno drenched in melodic drones and classical samples (the Vaughan Williams pilfer is inspired) – isn’t particularly new, but hey, we’ve only just discovered it, so it is to us. The tip-off came from the excellent video by French filmmakers Alex Dallou & Gregory Hoepffner, aka Radius Labs, which surprisingly and serendipitously popped up on the youtube homepage this morning and immediately grabbed our attention. Starting off as an atmospheric yet fairly down-the-line piece of horror-thriller, the film is thrown into complexity by an alienating use of mise en abyme that in turn moves full circle and is inserted into an additional layer of filmic reality. It’s fun, tricksy and very well done – just a shame that it doesn’t last longer.
