Boomkat Product Review:
'Antigravity' is a sui generis invocation of the rarest, compelling order coaxed from the French avant-garde by Blackest Ever Black. Around the locus of cult trumpeter Jac Berrocal - who famously appeared in the NWW list and collaborated with Steven Stapleton - David Fenech and Vincent Epplay unfold a deliciously psychedelic mystery steeped in the esoteric traditions of musique concrète, dub and jazz, and played with a DIY post-punk freedom. Whilst best heard deep in the night with lights low and something burning, ironically enough, it's gotta be the most colourful release yet on Blackest Ever Black, largely thanks to an enormously rich palette of instrumental timbres and adroit mixing trickery finding the mid-point between the Black Ark and IRCAM. Sometimes we see the most vivid colours with our eyes shut and that's how 'Antigravity' feels; a surreal waking dream where we wander the deliquescent, deserted film sets of abandoned Lynch, Buñuel or Jodorowsky's; zig-zagging in viscous, plasmic time from the bombed-out 4th world of 'Nanook' to the humid, playful scene of 'Panic In Bali' and the lysergic flashback of 'Rock 'n Roll Station' (a play on his NWW-listed classic), across the modular synth propelled heights of 'Where Flamingos Fly' onto dizzy and distorted gamelan imitations of 'Tsouking Chant' and the gibber-jawed hallucination of 'Solaris'. In the final run thru the bush poltergeists of 'Ife Layo' we feel the fever sweats dried by 'Spain''s arid dubs, but we're no less disoriented and land is still far out of sight. Please don't wake us up.
