Good Night Ambient, Electro Agura Matra If you delight in utter chaos and explosive misbehaviour, then this album is not for you. However, if you adore hauntingly beautiful music that is both experimental and culturally unique, then we may have what you want. This is Good Night from Indonesia's very own Agura Matra.   The songs on this sui generis, 4 track, album remind me of old Wumpscut, Iced Ages and other antediluvian soul reapers. Each one of these tracks harkens back to a time when the Industrial scene was a many tentacled beast that inflicted pain on your mind, body and soul with ghostly movements and subtle encroachments as well as Blitzkrieg assaults and deliberate world burning invasions.There is something delicious in the simplicity of the music on this album. It's about as far from complicated as one can get. A keyboard, some synths and sounds, a ghostly voice. It is all one needs to create something that stands out. Something that has been unheard of in the Western scene for quite some time. I could listen to this album a thousand times over. And perhaps I will.Overall, Good Night is a wonderfully subtle album. The songs float across the ether, leaving your world saturated in 450
