Tonight Sky is the latest solo project by Jason Holstrom, guitarist/vocalist with U.S.E, Wonderful, and Thieves of Kailua. A notorious perfectionist in the studio, Holstrom has been working on Tonight Sky music on and off for about five years. Finally, his Tonight Sky album will be released Nov. 5 on Sunstrom Sound. Holstrom has uploaded a song from the LP to Soundcloud, "Flight of the Falling Star." It's astral and aquatic, conjuring an angelic new age keyboard swirl before a Field-like techno lope ensues and Holstrom's sweet-guy vocals sonorously swoop in. The sound is vast, densely layered yet airy, and eager to lift you at least eight miles high. Holstrom is still figuring out how to translate this new music to a live context, so no shows are on the horizon, but expect plenty of videos to augment Tonight Sky.
