It's been refreshing to see the resurgence of real critical and commercial interest in acts that can safely be classified things like "new age" or "dark ambient" in recent years. Not long ago, used-CD bins overflowed with bad clip-art photography adorning ambient compilations and spaced-out synth noodling with titles like Cosmic Dispatches Vol. 3 and the like. Now, Julianna Barwick's vocal-looping womb-scapes and Demdike Stare's clanking post-industrial nightmares have given real validity to the notion that there is much life left under the vast umbrella of "ambient music," which in turn sends folks scurrying back to the bins to rediscover the greats of the genre. Here in town, we have a club night devoted to the stuff, called Rare Air, featuring local DJs and a live performance. This month, the act of honor is locally lauded Hair and Space Museum, whose stoic serenity can channel anyone from Global Communication to Brian Eno's seminal works, all accompanied by appropriately gorgeous, fractal imagery.
