The Finest Works of Trance To The Sun
Projekt is proud to announce the release of a 'best of' compilation album from the legendary surrealist goth / dream-pop / darkwave ensemble, Trance to the Sun. Ground-breaking and critically acclaimed in their time (1990-2001), this compilation coincides with the band's first performance in half a decade, at Convergence 13 in Portland (last weekend of May, 2007). Spiders, Aether & Rain features thirteen tracks spanning the entire Trance to the Sun oeuvre; from haunting, spindly ballads to thunderous goth-rock waltzes; from freaked-out electronic gems of hypnotic rhythm to heavily orchestrated pseudo-symphonic cacophonies. Whether you're a long time devotee, or just discovering this critically acclaimed, elegant music for the first time, this release is for you.
Spiders, Aether & Rain is released in a limited edition Digi-Pak which features newly created cover artwork by vocalist Ingrid Blue, plus a 12 page booklet filled with rare and previously unseen photos! Extensive liner notes, an unreleased track (from 1997's unfinished Equinox sessions), and Trance to the Sun's ultra-rare cover version of the Cocteau Twins "When Mama Was Moth" round out this no-holds-barred release. It's definitely a must have!
What the critics have said about Trance to the Sun:
SCI-FI (the official magazine of the Sci-FI channel): Mysterious lyrics enhance a slightly psychedelic, progressive-goth sound, generating an ambience that's ethereal, engaging, and unequivocally extraordinary.
ALTERNATIVE PRESS: A brand of music which incorporates elements of experimental, goth, ambient and rock into an ethereal stew, emphasizing cyclical trance structures around which the various elements interweave.
HIDDEN SANCTUARY: Trance to the Sun created a legacy of music that is at once entertaining as it is intelligent... all of their work will continue to be regarded as legendary, groundbreaking and proficient.
ALTERNATIVE PRESS: Trance to the Sun cast off the crutches of conventional song structure and bask in a shimmering miasma of tweaked and freaked guitars, synths, violins, bass... (they) have exploded the goth paradigm beyond recognition... this is complex experimental music that doesn't require that one have pallor or an all black wardrobe to enjoy.
THROWRUG MAGAZINE: If you like early Cocteau Twins, evocative female vocals and swirling psychedelic gothic cold icy guitars, you'll like Trance to the Sun.
