As with much of God Is An Astronaut’s music ‘Tempus Horizon’ is not something that’ll you’ll readily pinpoint. You’ll shadow the piece searching in vain for the hook that’ll burn the fog and reveal the magical undergrowth. It’ll take repeated listens but the seemingly incomprehensible chord gestures do eventually form an aural sketchbook to endlessly marvel. GIAA have been enthralling audiences for several years now back home in Ireland yet their appeal will doubtlessly spread to anywhere on the globe that a Mogwai record is played. The latter have been stuttering of late so GIAA seem primed to step up to the mark. ‘Tempus Horizon’ is taken from Volume 2 of the impressive ‘Silent Ballet’ post-rock/instrumental series, which is available as a free download here. If you find this tune fanciable then a trip down GIAA’s ‘All Is Violent, All Is Bright’ is something you should do before they steal your hearing forever. KD
