Secret Pyramid: Movements Of Night LP

Secret Pyramid: Movements Of Night LP

First (and not last) vinyl release from a Vancouver musician with a few tape/CDr releases to his name. Already a name to watch, as this is just a truly stunning album. Perfect music for a late, lonely, starry (or starless) night. The songs all seem to head for a sad, dark space, and they just follow it, leading into the darkness and baring whatever weather or emotional consequences may follow. “A Descent” ends up with a faint heartbeat. “Quiet Sky” looks deeply into the distant horizon, trying to find a sign of anything. “Closer” is woozy and displaced, and segues into the bright-yet-dark Windy & Carl-esque guitar drone of “To Forget”. “Move Through Night” starts with a drifty, almost steel guitar-sounding drone, but lost under a bitterly freezing cold icy night sky. This segues into “Wish” with a layer of snowy feedback, plunges to the bottom with the submerged organ of “Depths”, then makes its escape by surfacing and fading out. One of my favorite ambient releases of the year.
