Been listening to Infantjoy's Where The Night Goes for lots of times now, and how beautiful their musical frame for a night is!!
It's a journey from dusk till dawn, translated in one hour of music, divided in 12 pieces.There are electronic sounds, sampled voices and breaks, and there's a classical piano.The sounds are almost like atmospheric disturbances, like the unidentified noises late at night on the radio after all broadcasts have ended, accompanied by a warm and soothing piano. A bit melancholic at first, reminiscing the past day, then hopeful, awaking to a new tomorrow and a fresh new day. Erik Satie is heavily involved. And there’s this beautiful cover of David Sylvian’s Ghosts, although a bit too clearly sung -for my taste- by Sarah Nixey.
It’s rougher, it’s more experimental and it got so much more soul, if you want me to compare it with AoN. Imho Paul Morley has taken himself quite a few steps further from the Debussy album, and that’s exactly why I like Where The Night Goes so much. A breathtaking journey!!
