Boomkat Product Review:
*One of our favourite albums of all time now reissued with a bonus disc featuring a full live album recorded in 1982* Antena's bossa-pop masterpiece 'Camino Del Sol' really is the perfect summer album - all swooning changes, percolated Bontempi melodies and the kind of bittersweet, understated euphoria that defined Belgium's seminal 'Le Disques du Crepsecule' imprint in the early 1980's. Antena were made up of Isabelle Powaga, Pascale Moiroud and Sylvain Fasy and were signed to the legendary Crépuscule label in Belgium. At times reminiscent of Kraftwerk and John Foxx (who incidentally produced their 'Boy from Ipanema' single) while at the same time drawing influence from Jobim and Gilberto, the sound on this album is a deeply evocative mix that is really hard to place into any kind of contemporary context. Alas, Antena hardly sold any records, and were allegedly a factor in the demise of Crépuscule, but listening now it's just obvious that they were a victim of bad timing. Since then, this album has been hailed by more people than we could possibly mention as an absolute classic, blending a loungy Gallic charm with synthesized production and perfect hooks. Think of it as a lo-fi, Casio pop amalgamation of Stereolab, Sade, Krafwerk, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Bjork and you might get some sense of what to expect - but regardless of whether or not that description appeals to you - you owe it to yourself to at the very least give this gorgeous album some of your time.
