Boomkat product review for:

moon ate the dark - Moon Ate the Dark

Sonic Pieces - the Berlin home to handsome editions from Svarte Greiner, Hauschka, Dustin O'Halloran, Dictaphone et al - presents a new work from a new artist, Moon Ate The Dark. As fans of the label would hope and expect, it's a satisfying yolking together of tropes and strategies learned from post-rock, ambient electronica and classical minimalism, and begins with a grandstanding 10-minute piece, 'Explosions In A Four Chambered Heart', whose cyclical, cinematic melancholy recalls Philip Glass's most popular compositions. Piano is central throughout, sounding sonorous and humane amid the bleak ambience of 'Belles Jar' and 'Messy Hearts', beautifully crepuscular on 'Sleepwalk', gushingly expressive on 'Capsules 11'.
