Antony And The Johnsons Another World EP on 12" Vinyl
Antony and the Johnsons busted onto the international stage in 2005 with their breakthrough I Am A Bird Now. The group was awarded the Mercury Prize in the UK and toured the world. Antony then collaborated on tracks with Bjork for her 2007 album Volta, appeared in the Leonard Cohen documentary I'm Your Man, featured as vocalist with Hercules and Love Affair, recorded for the Todd Haynes bio epic of Bob Dylan I'm Not There, and collaborated with Charles Atlas on a European tour of their stage spectacle Turning.
After which Antony and the Johnsons emerged in 2009 with the album, The Crying Light. "Another World" was the album's first single and was also issued as part of the five-song Another World EP. On "Another World," Antony lists things he treasures about the natural world, and expresses that he will miss them; the result is hypnotic and affecting. The EP also includes "Shake That Devil." Part exorcism and part Shangri La, Antony calls out perpetrators, and banishes them one by one.
Two other songs, "Crackagen" and "Sing For Me" are pastoral and surreal. Finally the epic "Hope Mountain" closes the EP; an episodic narrative set after a flood; people gather on a mountainside to witness a girl walking on the water.
