HomeMusicReview: Antimatter Antimatter “Lights out” (The End Records) Fucking balls. I’m sitting here, waiting, waiting for the goddamn album to get started. I can’t write a review on sparse piano playing and whispering can I? When is the fucker going to kick in? Or is this it? Is that a mandolin? Now there’s an ultra-light industrial tinge coming in: big booming digitized drum. I get it, it’s mood music, and the mood is forlorn, depressed and ever so darkly wanting. I like it. It’s good as a thing. There’s a lot of feeling behind it. It’s like a cross between that David Bowie stuff in the movie Lost Highway and later era Pink Floyd (Learning to Fly). And it tends to take the best bits from the two. I think some people might call this music “poetic”. And that’s true; they use rhyme, assonance, alliteration. They make sure the words have a flow, but the words themselves lack; they’re a little on the bad goth girl website side of things if you know what I mean. But other lyrics are actually quite excellent. I like “you could fight a war with just your face,” that’s good. Different vocalists for different songs. Men and women. This is something I might grow to enjoy with time. Wish I had some.
