Last year I had a conversation with a friend of mine about the state of underground music. At the time he was getting into picking up new age records at thrift shops. We had a good laugh, and being one who worked at two new age record labels, I joked that in time new age music will be the new underground. Low and behold it has finally happened…with bands like Infinity Window flying the new age banner high and proud. As they should because their album Artificial Midnight is some of the highest order space music I have heard from a current band in recent years.

This album is one massive slab of heavy celestial space music. The three tracks that comprise this LP all start off subtle and build up over the time into monstrous trance enducing waves of synth that Klaus Schultze would be proud of. For all intensive purposes this could be some lost Krautrock gem finally discovered 30 years later. That is not to say it sounds out dated…on the contrary it is absolutely contemporary continuing on a tradition to take listeners into the farthest realms of the universe. Meditative and lush this music wraps around you like a soft blanket that you never want to take off.

Artificial Midnight is limited to 500 copies. I highly suggest anyone that is into deep space or drone music should go out and get a copy of this LP immediately…you won’t be disappointed.
