Wow, Working Order Records certainly hosted quite a few innovative electronic music acts during its House of Ruth benefit show at Black Cat on Aug. 19. In addition to Working Order Records’ own Technophobia, Alethea Leventhal, better known as Ships in the Night, arrived from Charlottesville, Virginia, to bewitch the audience with her breathy vocals and haunting synths.

Ships in the Night self-published Myriologues, an album of meditations on death, in April. Listen to Myriologues on Bandcamp:

Ships in the Night apparently next performs somewhat nearby on Oct. 1 at Gallery 5 Shows in Richmond, Virginia, with Jaguardini, Pete Curry, and Stone Garden Jam Temple (three Richmond bands).
