'Share his mysterious vision via snatches of half-familiar incidental music, swathed in memorial reverb, and found sounds such as the echo-location clicks of bats, all recorded on deliciously deteriorating used cassette tapes; 

- Stewart Lee. The Sunday Times.


'And then Brooks brings out the real treasure: his most focused musical compositions yet; think his Advisory Circle LPs cleaned of public information films but beefed up with extra melody.'
-George Bass. Drowned in Sound.

That Jon Brooks chose to examine the shift between winter and spring across his fourth LP on Clay Pipe Music is a magical thing itself and would be a delight even during the best of times. But these are not the best of times. Under such revised conditions Brooks’s musical ruminations feel absolutely necessary. How to Get to Spring is a series of analogue electronic lifelines that charm, entangle the soul and create wonder in the listener. This is a record to embrace, for it offers much in the way of comfort.
