My Cat Is An Alien - Leave me in the Black No-thing [Important Records - 2006]

Leave me in the Black No-thing finds the brothers Opalio in a much colder, lightless and bleak mood than there normal intergalactic trips into sound. This feels like a trip inside a black void deep in spaces changing seas, or a trip into inner space, trawling and drifting though the darken shore of ones self.

As well as the tone been greyer and almost monochrome for much of the playing time, they add in more subdued noise like elements- muffled and strained static and dark 
psychedelic synth eruptions. Making their first none space influenced  cover artwork seem very apt with it’s black and white pictures. But dont let that make you think this is any less detailed sonically or complete involving as their other work, it’s just the grimmer side of space. This time the album is spit into two long pieces, both nearing the half an hour mark. Both tracks start off very lightless and the feeling off spinning in an nothing void, but as they progress more depth and shades of grey are added, almost the feeling of contemplation glide in towards the end of  each track. As if your spirit is calm with-in the shifts of grey though to black and white space.

A very rewarding and different take on My Cat is An Alien sound, An album that offers up new depths and detail of the every turn void with each replay. Really another masterpiece.
