Music comes in many shapes and forms but to hear some very authentic and experimentally crafted material like New York based outfit La Cachette, this is without question one of the most diverse albums I’ve heard in recent memory. There’s elements of math rock, classical, atmospheric black metal, Latin and even progressive structures to make every song not only extremely enjoyable but to hear material that truly captivates and brings out emotions to the forefront. It has these powerful essences that engages the listener to strap themselves in into a atmospheric, mesmerizing and thought-provoking style of experimental music. From the beautifully designed album artwork, naturalistic instrumentation work, emotional and powerful vocal deliveries, Antiphonary for Songful Ghosts is a album about distinctive messages that will spiral down your shivered spines where a world so unknown yet, undiscovered the music represents a fascinating discovery if you let your perspective minds do the work for you.
Songs including Lavender Town, To Be a Post Mortem Photograph and Dream One (Double Mouse Monocles) for instance showcases maturity, progression and the overall musical components not only compliments itself but for experimental music it’s hard to capture its storytelling moments unless you have the mind and wisdom of a spokesman to witness such beauty and captivating pieces of music. Antiphonary for Songful Ghosts not only speaks full volumes but for a album that portrays a imaginative story, you will be pleasantly surprised to discover a world full of endless imaginations.
Overall Score: 8.5/10
