Brock van Wey and Scott Morgan aka Bvdub and Loscil coax the best out of each other on this epic, romantic dedication to the darkness of night. 'Erebus' takes it name from the Greek mythological figure used to represent "the personification of darkness…one of the first five beings to come into existence, born from Chaos", which provides a suitably classical backdrop for its five widescreen soundscapes. Erebus is said to have fathered several other deities, who lend their name to the track titles. 'Aether' is a thirteen minute ascension thru airy chorales to exalted ambient heights; 'Hespiredes' is segues from serene to dramatic shoegaze; the 24 minute centrepiece, 'Hypnos' meditates on Indian classical and cosmic ambient themes; 'Moirai' is a positively angelic panorama of blooming choral harmonics; 'Thanatos', the twin of 'Hypnos' is an elegiac, more succinct closer laden with heavy hearted minor key chords and swirl of plaintive vocals.
