Die neue Band von Bobby Wratten von THE FIELD MICE, NORTHERN PICTURE LIBRARY, TREMBLING BLUE STARS mit neuem Album als CD und 2xLP (+DL-Code) The moment has finally arrived and we couldn't be happier or more satisfied - we have LIGHTNING IN A TWILIGHT HOUR's first album in our hands. LIGHTNING IN A TWILIGHT HOUR is Bobby Wratten's new project, which we were talking about recently because of the introductory Mini-LP "Slow Changes". And there is not a doubt in our minds that Bobby Wratten's fans are going to feel tremendous happiness when they listen to the songs that make up this first LP, "Fragments Of A Former Moon". It's an album that shows off the two most remarkable facets of the songwriter: pop melodies that intertwine melancholic and evocative shades with an ambiance of experimentation in which the music becomes a bucolic, intoxicating landscape. In this first section we definitely include the album's opening song, "The Memory Museum", which carries the songwriter's unmistakable mark, and which reminds us of other songs from the TREMBLING BLUE STARS period. "The Pattern Room" has a touch of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop about it and sees the band with Trish Keenan of BROADCAST very much in their thoughts on this "Die Brücke" inspired song. "The Passerby" delves into the melancholy of Mark Hollis's more introspective albums, with certain baroque touches, while "Fever Dreams Of Emilia" and "Taking The Figure Out Of The Landscape" fit more into the instrumental section, constructing evocative textures along the lines of genre-masters Brian Eno and LABRADFORD, creating dense, hazy sensations, and always leaving room for the tones and registers to stretch out into the harmonic horizons. This is an album for a silent and solitary night.
