Renee Barrance and Tim Player are OV PAIN, a band that dwells in the musical landscape of Gothic darkwave.  On their new self-titled album the keyboards create thick layers of swirling sound over pounding percussion, with haunting vocals partially hidden in the fog.  The effect is claustrophobic and dissonant, but ultimately vital and majestic.  Through earphones, late at night, this album has become a first choice way to end the day.
