Cavern of Anti-Matter - Void Beats / Invocation Trex

Cavern of Anti-Matter – Void Beats / Invocation Trex - Duophonic records

As a founder of indie outfit Stereolab, Tim Gane meshed lounge, krautrock, electronic music, and more to produce a mesmerizing vision that felt like the past’s vision of the future and the future’s vision of the past. With the help of a new band and a few unexpected guests, Gane continues his mischievous streak on Void Beats / Invocation Trex, building familiar, pleasing drones to get your head nodding.

Stereolab were regularly compared to everyone from Neu! to Burt Bacharach, and none of that ever felt wrong. There was an eerie timelessness to much of their discography — particularly the masterpiece Emperor Tomato Ketchup — in the same way that The Jetsons used tropes from early sitcoms and dropped them into a future at once magical and familiar. It might not be as explosive as Stereolab, but Void Beats carries the same hypnotic quality.

Animal Collective is an American experimental pop group formed in Baltimore, Maryland in 1999. The band's music is characterized by studio experimentation, vocal harmonies, and an exploration of various genres which include freak folk, noise rock, ambient drone, and psychedelia.

Painting With is the upcoming tenth studio album by American experimental pop group Animal Collective, to be released on February 19, 2016. The album is a follow-up to Centipede Hz (2012), and features contributions from John Cale and Colin Stetson. Three singles have been issued from the album: "FloriDada", "Lying in the Grass", and "Golden Gal"

The band recorded in the Studio 3 room at EastWest, the same space once used by Brian Wilson for the Beach Boys' albums Pet Sounds(1966) and Smile. The album was subsequently mixed at Gang Recording Studio in Paris, France with Sonny DiPerri.

Todd's Two Too! airs Friday mornings 8:30-9:00 during Jerianne's Morning Show on 89.5 KVMR FM Nevada City.
