Noctilucence is a word that describes something that shines in the dark. Sometimes clouds that are illuminated by the light from the moon are called noctilucent. David Peck recently put a six track album on Bandcamp under the title of “Noctilucence,” and it totally shines in the dark.


The first track, “An Orange Aperture” is full of really thick synth waves and lots of other sufficiently dark sounds. The beat is strong, and this is totally an electronic hip hop song. It’s very solid, and one of the best on the album.

My personal favorite of the six tracks on Noctilucence is the last one, “Coal & Ice.” It starts off a bit quieter, but eventually builds into a great swell of energy full of organic sounding beats and guitar tones. This track is the longest on the album, coming in at almost five and a half minutes, and it spends all of that time wisely. Swells and dynamics really make music like this worth listening to.

You can download the title track, a five-minute journey through dark and shining tones, for free or buy the whole album for one dollar. This is all really cool, and as always, you can stream it directly from Bandcamp for free. Give David Peck a listen on some good speakers and decide if you think this music shines in the dark! It’s obviously had a great deal of work from Peck himself, having written, composed, performed, engineered, mixed and mastered everything himself. Excellent work!
