CAVERN OF ANTI-MATTER

Cavern Of Anti-Matter

In Fabric OST

    Limited edition vinyl release of the original Cavern Of Anti-Matter score for Peter Strickland’s horror film In Fabric. 6 sides of vinyl in a full colour Julian House designed sleeve with download card. The first 1500 copies come housed inside a hand-stamped paper bag, sold exclusively via Duophonic UHF Disks mailorder and independent record shops.

    Interviewed in The Wire about the soundtrack, Strickland commented: “I was a fan of Stereolab and so much of the music I fell in love with was because of their recommendations whenever they were interviewed. Using Steven Stapleton’s music in my first film indirectly came about from first hearing Nurse With Wound on the joint Crumb Duck release with Stereolab. Stereolab were a whole world, what with their championing of other bands through their Duophonic label. After meeting Tim and talking about film it made complete sense to ask him if he would do something. That was unusual in that I didn’t have any specific project in mind. Tim sent me some very long demos to help me write, he implicitly understood that longer tracks are more conducive to writing. Elements of some of those demos worked their way into In Fabric. It was a luxury to work that way, usually, musicians are only approached after writing”.

    Reissue of Cavern Of Anti-Matter’s much sought-after first album, originally issued as a vinyl only edition of 500 copies on Berlin label Grautag Records. Finally getting the wider release it deserves courtesy of the band’s own Duophonic imprint. It has been recut as a triple vinyl set and is being made available on CD for the first time. The 3LP edition comes with a download card for the full album.

    The recordings here actually represent the genesis of the whole Cavern Of Anti-Matter project: commissioned by artist Nicolas Moulin to come up with a double album of original material, Tim Gane (formerly of the much loved Stereolab) hunkered down in his home studio for three weeks with a collection of old sequencers, drum machines and analogue synths. With the assistance of Joe Dilworth and Holger Zapf he produced the 16 tracks that comprise ‘blood drums’. The initial pressing sold out instantly and offers followed to play live and make more records. As a result of this positive response, Cavern Of Anti-Matter have gradually evolved from one-off experiment to full-time band.

    Barry says: A long awaited reissue of COAM's long-gone debut album 'Blood Drums'. Driving cosmic synth pulses, dreamy arps and pulsing motorik rhythms form into an epic and emotive whole. If you loved the newest album or have even a passing interest in synthery, give this one a razz. Awesome.

    Cavern Of Anti-Matter

    Void Beats / Invocation Trex

    Stereolab are veritable indie-rock legends, with a dedicated worldwide fanbase, and a band much beloved by their fellow musicians, with notable champions including Blur, Pharrell Williams (yes, really), Flying Lotus and Pavement. Most recently, and taking their fandom the extra mile, the prize has to go to !!!.

    Cavern Of Anti-Matter are the new band from Stereolab mainman Tim Gane, now Berlin-based and collaborating with original Stereolab drummer Joe Dilworth, and synth wizard Holger Zapf.

    We're very pleased to be helping out their label, Duophonic, with the release of void beats/invocation trex, Cavern Of Anti-Matter's first album proper after a number of limited vinyl releases. The album is an epic 72 minute journey featuring guest vocals from Bradford Cox (Deerhunter), Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3), and sound processing from Jan St. Werner (Mouse On Mars). 

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Sara says: I'm on a self-imposed ban of all non-essential purchases as I'm saving for my holiday but I heard this slab of mesmeric, krautrocking brilliantness from Stereolab's Tim Gane and decided this is essential.

    Andy says: Hypnotic grooves, burbling modular synths and a guest appearance from mister Deerhunter and Sonic Boom. Very big on the shop stereo!

    Barry says: You’ve heard Stereolab right? Well, this is Tim Gane of said band distilling the driven, head-nodding hypnotic intensity of their greatest work into an instrumental synth powerhouse. Motorik beats and soaring arpeggios form together into a rocking but predominantly electronic cacophony of driving rhythm and ecstatic melody. The whole of ‘Void Beats / Invocation Trex’ is lucid as a whole, but entirely dissectible and enjoyable piece by piece. “Insect Fear” is a cosmic and psychedelic trip through hammond-laced rock and Kosmische sequencing, perfect for vocals but even better without, leaving the push and pull of parts to form a sort of call/answer scenario, as one fades out the other comes roaring in. “Pantechnicon” is as grand as it sounds, and could easily be a flying-car laden skyscrapered skyline, viewed from a sunny panorama. An unbelievable and irresistible vision quest.
