Cavern Of Anti-Matter Void Beats/Invocation Trex on 3LP + Download
New Project from Stereolab's Tim Gane!
Cavern Of Anti-Matter is the new project from Stereolab mainman Tim Gane, now Berlin-based and collaborating with original Stereolab drummer Joe Dilworth, and synth wizard Holger Zapf. This is their first album proper following limited edition vinyl releases on Grautag, Deep Distance, Peripheral Conserve and Associated Electronic Recordings. Void Beats/Invocation Trex also features contributions from Bradford Cox (Deerhunter), Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3) and Jan St. Werner (Mouse On Mars).
Tim Gane explains the group's sound this way: "Cavern Of Anti-Matter are spectrum addicts, setting up tiny rhythmic cells and expanding on them in certain ways, splitting the melody and stretching out. The melodic movement is much slower due to the lack of words. At the moment, the Cavern sound is more what I want to do."
"Repaints the neon-lit underpasses of Kraftwerk and Neu!, while irregular, perverted, wavering synths recalls and elaborates on DAF and forgotten 80s electropop" – The Guardian
