It’s been a fantastic trip navigating Midday Veil’s psych-rocky synthscapes over the last six years. Their third, and most ambitious LP proper, This Wilderness (of which they are celebrating the release tonight following their three-week US tour), is their most topographic, phonographic masterpiece to date. The album’s built around layers of deep-space analog synths, oceanic guitars, and an earth-moving rhythm section, over which Emily Pothast’s enchanting, God Mother vocals resonate in the clouds. With producer Randall Dunn’s crystalline ear, knob-handling finesse, and some incredibly talented guest musicians on hand (Bernie Worrell, Eyvind Kang, Skerik), This Wilderness creates a provocative experience that alludes to elements of Scottish shoegaze pioneers Cocteau Twins, horror-film-music aficionados Zombi, dark-disco master Patrick Cowley, and kraut-rock legends Amon Düül II. See the colors of Midday Veil’s musical aura in the flesh, and go the distance. TRAVIS RITTER
