We have raved at length about Cavern of Anti-Matter, whose second album void beats / invocation trex was one of our Picks of 2016 and remains a favourite. So we’re thrilled to know the Berlin based trio headed by Stereolab’s co-founder Tim Gane, and also comprising former Stereolab drummer Joe Dillworth and synth master Holger Zapf are gearing up to release its follow-up, Hormone Lemonade. With the sounds of modular synths and home-built drum machines heavily used on the new record, Holger’s self-constructed rhythm machines, the Taktron Z3 and Taktron Z2, recorded to tape over three one-hour sessions, were the “album’s genesis”, as the press release describes.
Hormone Lemonade arrives on March 22nd through Duophonic and we can already hear the explosive and trance-inducing first single ‘Make Out Fade Out’. Play it loud.
