ANOHNI – HOPELESSNESS
ANOHNI, formerly of Antony and the Johnsons, needed a different musical framework for venting her political ideas. HudMo and OPN bring their best, most detailed and dramatic electronics. Meanwhile, we’re warned against everything: global warming, drone bombs, presidents, etc. All problems go on one big pile, but someone has to address them, and that otherworldly voice makes you believe her every word. Message and sound go hand in hand on a gloomy, devastating, revolutionary record.
