Here we go then. It’s the first two tracks from the forthcoming album from ANOHNI formerly Antony Hegarty of Antony & The Johnsons. Production on this album is shared by Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke!
I repeat that’s ANOHNI + Daniel Lopatin + Ross Birchard. Whoever suggested this team up was some crazy visionary type. This is an act of sonic gigantism that should really be too much to bear but somehow it’s not. On first listen ‘4 degrees’ ANOHNI’s mournful rage against global warming [‘I wanna see the animals die in the trees, lets go, lets go its only 4 degrees’] sounds misplaced over HudMo’s signature thunderous horn stabs, but after a while, you realise they are as insanely bombastic as the way we have gone about destroying our earth mother.
