Recorded at Handlebar (Nite Comfort 46), July 2, 2017.

NAVI - Granular/Neptune's Descent

The project brought one of the more elaborate stage setups that I've ever seen at Nite Comfort, with various musical workstations surrounded by the some oversized glowing beacon lights. Performing mostly as a duo, Justin Huang Ford (keyb, guit) and Matthew Romerein (synth, electronics) were joined for part of the set by Patricia Joong. Creating enveloping atmospheres, the set moved from science lab wubble-wobble to post-apocalyptic spaghetti western sounds — live, the echo-y twang was more front and centre than on their recent EP.

[Nite Comfort returns to Handlebar on Sunday, August 6th, with sets from Hybrid Frequency and Stargoon.]

* Thanks to Justin for passing along the titles to these!

    1. Merci! I grabbed the Derelict album on Bandcamp, but I decided to save it for a properly moonlit evening.
