2015 release. Following the acclaim of The Current, listed by The Wire among the best avant-rock albums of 2013, Midday Veil return with This Wilderness, a seven-track opus filled with mysteries of cosmic proportions. Songwriter Emily Pothast gives voice to these mysteries with an uncanny, poetic presence, while the outsized synth wizardry of co-founder David Golightly dazzles under the influence of everything from Stockhausen to Donna Summer's "Love to Love You Baby." The intricate percussion of Garrett Moore, driving bass of Jayson Kochan and explosive, reptilian guitar lines of multi-instrumentalist Timm Mason provide a distinctive foundation for these animated, infectious songs. Features guest spots from Bernie Worrell (Parliament, Funkadelic), Eyvind Kang & Skerik. Produced by Randall Dunn.
