Other Ideas sums up some 11 years of The Boats’ beautiful, lower case ambient pops with a rummage thru “forgotten fragments, abandoned building blocks, loops, live recordings, rehearsal tapes and orphaned songs 2003 - 2014.”

In recent times the Boatsmen, Andrew Hargreaves (Beppu, Tape Loop Orchestra) and Craig Tattersall (Hood, The Remote Viewer), have veered perilously into post-industrial techno but, Lost Ideas is a return to the serene fields they frolicked before they went feral - encircling dusted downbeats, pastoral chamber pop and the swaying fronds of deserted, intimate live sessions in a water-stained flick-book of a compilation.

For anyone who has followed their oeuvre over the past decade and more, from earliest emissions on Moteer thru their tiny treasures for Japan’s Flau and later dreams with Danny Norbury and Demdike Stare’s Miles Whittaker, such as Ballads Of The Research Department for 12K, the core duo and their pals have left a delicious trail of sonic breadcrumbs along a variegated and winding path.

If you’re familiar with their frayed sound, this tape is a must-have, filling in all the gaps and cracks in their catalogue but, if you’re a newcomer, it’s also a fine place to sample their crackly, slow-burning and tenderly nuanced atmospheres.
