MIDNIGHT DOCTORS

THROUGH A SCREEN AND INTO A HOLE

THROUGH A SCREEN AND INTO A HOLE

COMPACT DISC/DOWNLOAD - Ouro05, 2015 - OUT 13.11.15

Through a Screen and Into a Hole moves away from the vignette approach of Midnight Doctors' eponymous debut in favour of more focussed and expansive instrumentals. The album continues to mutate and exaggerate various absorbed inspirations from the margins, back-catalogues and bargain bins of culture (particularly soundtracks); the avant-garde (various brow-heights) and traditional musics, but this time is particularly informed by cosmic Impulse! jazz, 60s baroque pop productions and decades of cop themes (all viewed through a skewed psychedelic lens).
