It took the new
The Moon and the Nightspirits‘
record a while before it reached my CD player. Already released in June of this year it almost got lost in the stream of releases that were coming out this fall.
Almost but not quite, and that is a good thing because Aether swept me off my feet from the very first note I heard. This is the best album I’ve heard this year. and that with stiff competition from bands like
Grumpy O sheep,
(what a musical year it has been.)
With Aether, The Moon and the Nightspirit wanted to add a certain ‘masculinity’ into their sound and the result is a gothic/medieval pagan folk CD that just blew me away. Now you could follow the
and have a read what I find so special about this new album – (and it would be highly appreciated by yours truly) – but really, if you love the music of
Dead Can Dance,
and of course The Moon and the Nightspirit themselves, don’t be bothered; just buy the record; put it on; get yourself a headphone; a chair; and vanish in this beautiful masterpiece.
