When I wrote my small piece about the release show for this new CD by Ethernet, I hadn’t heard a lick of the music. The good people at Lifelike Family wisely held off on putting the music online, the better to encourage curious listeners to hear some of it live and to pick up a copy of the album at the show on Friday (which I sadly had to miss for work reasons).
The new work by Tim Gray is now online and it is as transporting and transfixing as I anticipated. Almost alien abduction-like in that respect. You’re taken to an entirely new galaxy but the experience isn’t a fearful one. Instead, you feel bathed in the warm glow of sound and the zero gravity. For a half-hour, you float joyously along, happily lost in space.
