Boomkat product review for:

antony & the johnsons / oneohtrix point never - Swanlights EP

Antony has long been a purveyor of a darker brand of cabaret, but last year he exhibited an unexpected turn collaborating with premier league kosmische type Dan Lopatin aka Oneohtrix Point Never and noise/ambient Godfather Christian Fennesz. This willingness to push his sound into more peculiar places can instantly be heard on ‘Swanlights’, not least from the submerged drones of the title track. Antony’s vocals sound more pained and cavernous than ever, and rather than the more traditional clean piano, his voice is accompanied by a shimmering, distorted guitar and doomy plucked bass. The result is a track that revels in a Lynchian quality we rarely hear; ‘Swanlights’ captures the upended pop referentialism of Lynch’s America and places us right in the darkness, surrounded by light. The real draw is going to be Lopatin’s inspired rework of this track however; taking the already squiffy vocal, Lopatin underpins soaring synth strings, expertly chopped-out arpeggios and his signature wavering leads. The result is both nausea inducing and utterly captivating, showing a new side to Lopatin’s production and re-affirming the fact that sometimes remixes can be just so lush. Huge recommendation.
