Three new LPs from alt.vinyl have arrived in our shop today, one of which is this self-titled effort by The Midnight Doctors, an LP which boasts 19 tracks and a mammoth 26 contributors. The press release informs me that it contains ...so you should expect a confused mess, right? Well, wrong in this case. Phil Begg created this album as a studio project (although a live show is on the horizon) and despite the abundance of tracks it all flows together almost like one piece, albeit a somewhat hallucinogenic one in a similar way to the Heroin In Tahiti side of their now-sold-out split 12" with Ensemble Economique.

It’s a gently paced and quite stylistically diffuse collection but it flows together quite languorously, rolling intuitively through dense layered Rain Drinkers-esque drones and lots of film soundtrack inspired instrumentals which, with often lavish orchestration, bring to mind the likes of Bernard Herrmann, plus more experimental avant-garde inspired pieces with creaking strings and stop-start drones and wibbly tape manipulation weirdness. Not an easy album to review because it never sits still for particularly long, but a powerful instrumental narrative piece which combines soundtracks, modern electro acoustic neoclassical and minimal experimentalism in a surprisingly easy to stomach procession of tunes and moods.
