Pioneers of Spaceflight

Pioneers of Spaceflight

Recorded over the course of a year and a half – and subsequently mixed by long term collaborator Magnus Lindberg (Cult
of Luna) – the new album from Late Night Venture continues and expands the cosmic soundscape, which the band has
refined since releasing their debut album in 2006.

Late Night Venture

Located in the neverland between shoegaze-influenced, melodic songwriting and cosmic postrock, ”Pioneers of space-
flight” explores themes of isolation, hope and celestial beauty over 10 songs: From the wall-of-sound prologue of the
majestic ”Kaleidoscopes”, by way of the hypermelodic ”Birmingham” (issued last year on 7 inch vinyl) and the appealing
and compact ”Houses” towards a fitting culmination with ”Carisma” – a seven minute psycedelic epilog.

 

In order to capture the organic quality of their music, Late Night Venture chose to record all tracks live in the studio
rather than the conventional layer-by-layer method. This way – and through subsequent treatments by Magnus Lindberg
and the band – a life-like, musical narrative could be created using guitars, synth, voices, pianos and drums as pen and
paper.
