Stereolab’s Tim Gane has started a new band called Cavern of Anti-Matter, which also features Joe Dilworth (Th’ Faith Healers/Stereolab) and Holger Zapf. The band has just announced its debut album, titled Void Beats / Invocation Trex, which is being released on February 19 via Duophonic. The album also features appearances by Deerhunter’s Bradford Cox, Spacemen 3’s Sonic Boom and Mouse on Mars’ Jan St. Werner. Listen to new track “Melody in High Feedback Tones” below.
Gane released a statement about the album:
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.
Tim Gane recently appeared on Deerhunter’s Fading Frontier.
