A World Out of Time, Portland quintet ETERNAL TAPESTRY‘s second full-length of 2012, is a new kind of album for the band. As opposed to previous efforts, which were culled from many hours of recordings, it was recorded as a whole. The resulting record, while not restricted to the four minute song, has the focus and the flow that only music conceived as a narrative can. Taking inspiration from groups like Faust and Algarnas Tradgard, the album unfolds as a collage, the most salient elements of their sound sewn into a seamless patchwork. In the process, the group has constructed an incredibly dynamic album, juxtaposing expansive improvised sections with their most deliberate material yet.
A World Out of Time will be released on CD and LP by Thrill Jockey on the 12th November 2012.
Not part of Niven’s Known Space universe, 'A World Out of Time' shares a number of similar ideas: devices that provide instantaneous between various locations, the knowledge of how to move planets, fountain-of-youth substances and deep sleep tanks for long space voyages. Even though it's a good introduction to hard/SF, at its heart there is a lot of Edgar Rice Burroughs adventure in it.
