I mentioned Danish band Late Night Venture a few weeks back and today the band's self-titled album is released on Quartermain Records. The band was originally called Flying Virgins, but earlier this year the band decided to change the name to Late Night Venture. However the band did experience some success under the previous name, because downloads of the 2004 EP Lazy have exceeded a respectable 50,000. The tracks of the EP are still available as free downloads, and the 4 very good songs (clocking in at +26 minutes) are an intriguing/fascinating mix of alternative rock and epic dreampop, with the occasional indie twist, which obviously have made people compare the band to other ones like Mercury Rev, Placebo, Flaming Lips etc. So far I've searched in vain for the track list of the Late Night Venture album (I haven't bought a copy yet - but I certainly will), but (by reading a few reviews) it seems like that one or more of the older songs will re-appear on the new album (please correct me if I'm wrong), which should be more than enough to guarantee a really fine album.
