The Black Angels: Science Killer
Various Artists: LateNightTales; Trentemoller (LateNightTales)

Another installment in the on-going LNT series, this compiled by Danish electronica artist Trentemoller who opts for a dark, almost suffocating and disturbing evening at home by many less familiar but very interesting artists (The Black Angels, Chimes and Bells, Darkness Falls, Thee Oh See's) alongside a few moody notables (This Mortal Coil, Low, Mazzy Star, Velvet Underground, M.Ward, Nick Cave and Warren Ellis from their soundtrack to The Road) and ending as usual with another reading by Paul Morley.

Even the pop from the Shangri-La's is gloomy (Walking in the Sand).

Useful intro to some fascinating artists, and a disconcerting collection to be played with the lights out.

Keep a torch handy.
