The music of Black Tempest is new to me but I know we've stocked a couple of his/her/their releases in the past (both self-released and via Apollolaan) and they seemed quite popular. I can see why as a fine skill at mining the cosmic gold mine has been displayed in the tracks on this new one thus far.. It's pure synth-powered sci-fi and the grainy quality of it suggests the hard variety (think the dirty, cobbled together Nostromo of Alien, battered, flickering computer systems and all) rather than the soft (all shiny surfaces, spotless
uniforms and space dudes with nary a hair out of place). There are plently of Zombi moments as well as conjurings of Emeralds and the like but for the most part it's really got its own thing going on as it morphs from passage to passage, never stopping off in one place long enough for your interest to wander. I look forward to hearing more..

The latest offering from the man known as Stephen Bradbury. Secret Astronomies picks up where his previous albums, Proxima and Ex-Proxima, left off. This 5 track album is more realized than his previous two, taking the listener further into space than ever before. The music of Black Tempest stretches out the boundaries between space and time. There is a teleporting effect to this music, making you feel as if you are floating in space. I look forward to seeing where Black Tempest goes next!
