about

"Seatman is a kindred spirit, and this is his most evocative and personal sounding work to date."
Jim Jupp, (Ghost Box, 2013)

Boxes consists of 12 tracks of bubbly synths, chiming robotics and twangy guitars, recalling cheapo 50s sci-fi flicks, 60s spy movies and dusty old underwater nature docs, as filtered through an English seaside town perspective. An interesting entry into the odd genre of wibbly, weird electronica that's been nicknamed "Hauntology"
Thomas Paterson (Shindig Magazine, June 2013)

A brand new name to our little corner of the interworldnetweb and one that brings with it some really quite intriguing sounds.
Seatman's music is one of whimsical electrosis. There's an often nursery rhyme aesthetic that waltzes through the less capricious and altogether more caustic elements. Psychedelia is very much the game of the day here and indeed this album makes for a very colourful and kaleidoscopic experience even when the hardest thing you have to hand is Earl Grey tea in a mug with the words 'Space Bastard' on the side.
IAN HOLLOWAY (Wonderful Wooden Reasons July 2013)

Boxes, Windows and Secret Hidey Holes is the new album from Keith Seatman. Analogue electronics and spectral archival voices evoke a dreamlike and melancholic atmosphere of memories both real and imagined.

Following his 2010 album debut Consistently Mediocre and Daydreams Seatman's latest project is inspired by the discovery of a forgotten box of postcards and photos in the family attic. Some of these he remembered and more intriguingly some of them he did not. Photos of swimming in an outdoor pool in Worthing on a rainy day. The Volks Electric Railway, Brighton, empty coaches lined up along a sodden seafront. Congealed cream teas. Smokey working mens' clubs. Sweaty barmen chain smoking and getting drunker by the second. "Aunties" and "Uncles", names now forgotten. A wake with whispered platitudes. So many faces. So many hats and hairdos. And so many hiding places.
