The Invisible Architect is the third full-length album by like minded production duo and long-term friends 1000names.

Nice LP with beautiful steppy atmospheres. Born With Promise and Milky Plastic are my favs so far. Nice to see Project Mooncircle continuing their story of success when it comes to releasing stuff like this. Airplay for BLN.FM.
