This sounds good, the last album didn’t connect with me, although the book and artwork were stellar as usual. He seems to be sinking more into ambient hauntological sounds for now.

I only found out about this artist 1 week ago. His back catalog is quite bizarre, this being his most accessible release. It has a similar haunted house Freescha / Night Feels / Terror Train aesthetic: Lo-Fi beats paired with spooky synths.
From Bleep: "Another set of Ghost Box-style strangeness from Ian Hodgson’s Moon Wiring Club here. Ghastly Garden Centres sees Hodgson getting green fingers by exploring the latent weirdness of the garden centre. Trip-hop, breakbeat, dub, downtempo, jazz and more are all bundled together on this set of hauntological oddball electronics. The quintessentially British feel of Ghastly Garden Centres means that you can file it alongside the likes of Mr. Scruff and The Gasman. Scattered across 22 spectral tracks — each brandishing screwed-up techno and ramshackle house sensibilities as their misshapen tools — the many vignettes of Ghastly Garden Centres by Moon Wiring Club (Ian Hodgson) brings to life a distinctly British sort of dilapidation. Taking its cues from Ghost Box’s edgeland futurism, trip hop and dub beats droop ever-lower into their downtrodden sway, as spectral presences dip in and out of earshot like potentiality just beyond grasp."
I'd never heard anything from this artist until recently. A great compilation that evokes BOC old tunes, The Advisory Circle, Keith Seatman, Belbury Poly - you know the kind of vibe on here. This guy has created a lot of music that needs unearthing.
