Stereolab’s Tim Gane has had his new band, Cavern Of Anti-Matter, going for a few years now, alongside Holger Zapf and former Stereolab drummer Joe Dilworth. They released a double album, Blood-Drums, back in 2013, and followed that up with an Interlude Music 12″ last year. Today, the Berlin-based trio has announced another record called void beats/invocation trex, which is being billed as their first “album proper.” It will feature vocal contributions from Deerhunter’s Bradford Cox and Spacemen 3’s Sonic Boom, and sound processing from Mouse On Mars’ Jan St. Werner. Here’s what Gane had to say about the project in a press release:
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.
