Part of our Albums of the Year 2016
The latest entry of far flung library rooted machine-led psychedelia from Cavern Of Anti-Matter, for the longstanding and freshly revised Duophonic Ultra High Frequency Disks. You may well know Tim Gane and Joe Dilworth from shoegaze indie group Stereolab so for fans lookin' for a bit of that magic we are pleased to say have come to the right place, but! by enlisting the talents of Holger Zapf they have moved further afield into new avenues with the vintage library styled sci-fi sounds of void beats/invocation trex. With an all star line up of guest spots including Bradford Cox (Deerhunter) Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3) and Jan St. Werner (Mouse on Mars) they have crafted a modern classic of indie-electronica that’s sure to stay close to many turntables for years to come.
The tracks flit between analogue kosmiche, post-punk electro and hi-tech jazz techno with ease whilst all the while being held together by a penchant for spectrum spooling sounds and rhythm that give nod to fellow soundtrack travellers such as Jonny Trunk and The Advisory Circle. The narrative is one of uplifting waves of tightly played, experiments of fruitful pop which even at points glances back to the sounds explored within one of Gane's earliest incarnations as part of legendary noise group Uncommunity. Cavern of Anti-Matter are a group who have been built upon years of experience and whilst not afraid to look back on the shared history of its members for influence void beats/invocation trex acts as a perfectly placed reminder that the road they are currently travelling down is one untrodden by few and sure to lay forth possibly the most unique chapter in each member’s discography yet.
