Esoteric Antenna are pleased to announce the release of the eagerly awaited new studio collaborative album by PETER HAMMILL & GARY LUCAS. Peter Hammills work, both as a solo artist and as part of Van Der Graaf Generator, is legendary, whilst Gary Lucas has worked closely with many great artists and vocalists, including Don Van Vliet (Captain Beefheart) and Jeff Buckley. Described by Peter as something quite strange, but strangely powerful, all the music on Other World has been created using nothing more than guitars and Hammills unique vocals. Songs and other worldly instrumental tracks create a sonic atmosphere that is unique and spellbinding. A stunning work, Other World is certain to be one of the most unique and atmospheric albums of 2014.

The dissonant guitar styles are particularly effective throughout with the discordant slashing of PH set against the backdrop of GL's more accomplished melodic performances. Most of the songs are either good or very good while also being unusually accessible and undemanding. The more ambient instrumental pieces provide cushioning between songs or are primers for the songs to come, they are also serious statements in their own right with the rain-soaked "Attar of Roses" being my favourite.
There are two superb tracks however in "This is showbiz" that twists and turns but still hangs together beautifully with GL's guitar sparkling throughout. The narrative paying homage to a perfect moment crystallizing in the crucible of a stage performance resulting in the music now being listened to. The other being "The Kid" again showcasing GL's excellent guitar work, this time the narrative warning of the corruptibility of fame, and again, with the PH vocal sounding as effortless and controlled as ever.
Although there is no doubt that PH has lost a lot of his vocal range over the years with the beautifully ugly aspect of his voice having diminished he still retains a certain grace and control that is far less jarring to the senses. I'm still trying to get to grips with "Reboot" but that will come in time.Read more ›
No doubt the years increasingly refined Peter Hammill, because the patient is in excellent shape matching very well your experience with innovation that has accustomed us.
The symbiosis with Gary Lucas is perfect, keeping intact the Universe Hammill.
Great Album .... I heartily recommend
