Pendleton Ward’s The Midnight Gospel is beguiling, strange, and atmospheric. It’s also got some killer music.
That music comes from composer and musician Joe Wong, who really knocks it out of the cosmos with all of his work, but particularly the song that plays during the show’s last episode, “Dreams Wash Away.” Now, Netflix has released a music video for the beautiful, melancholy song. Perfect listening for drifting through the multiverse.
Pendleton Ward’s post-Adventure Time experiment is a fascinating show in its own right, and though I haven’t watched the whole thing there’s clearly a lot here to enjoy. This music video is a nice taste if you haven’t seen it, yet. It doesn’t reveal anything, but it offers mood and presence, which, with such a lushly animated and crafted work, is a major part of the package.
The Midnight Gospel is streaming now on Netflix, and is well worth checking out.
