Ambient drift rock band Landing were formed in 1998 by married couple Aaron and Adrienne Snow, two musicians who had met at Brigham Young University and moved to Connecticut after graduating. Starting out as a duo under the name May Landing, keyboardist Adrienne and guitarist Aaron were eventually joined by drummer/bassist Daron Gardner and guitarist/bassist Dick Baldwin, and later on by multi-instrumentalist Peter Baumann (often erroneously mistaken for the former Tangerine Dream member of the same name). Landing quickly set about recording their dark, ambient dream pop, resulting in several cassette and EP releases including, notably, their 1999 debut EP Centrefuge. Their early work was stylistically close to that of contemporaries like Flying Saucer Attack, Bowery Electric, and Windy & Carl, with buried vocals and washes of noisy texture riding slow, drawn-out rhythms. The year 2001 brought the release of their debut full-length, Circuit; their second full-length release, Oceanless; and a split EP with Windy & Carl. Prolific in their early days, Landing followed the next year with Seasons as well as several EPs of new material. Two albums on venerable indie label K Records showed up over the next two years, Passages Through in 2003 and Sphere in 2004. Their sixth full-length album, 2005's Gravitational IV, would mark the beginning of a long hiatus for the band, broken in 2012 with the release of a self-titled album on the Geographic North label. At this point the band had switched up membership somewhat, with drummer John Miller taking over for Gardner. Always collecting new music in the extended-play single format, Landing issued two new EPs after their return, Wave Lair in 2012 and II the next year.
