CAINA Completes Work On New AlbumJuly 14, 2008
Eclectic UK phenomenon CAINA, comprised of mastermind Andrew Curtis-Brignell, has completed work on its new full-length LP for Profound Lore Records.
Entitled "Temporary Antennae", the new album sees Curtis-Brignell stretch his musical oeuvre to new unheard levels culminating in a maturity which presents more depth and substance to the unique sound he conjured by combining the likes of raw black metal, 4AD post-rock, and folk/singer-songwriter music. Building upon the promise that was evident with last year's "Mourner" release, "Temporary Antennae" goes much beyond the foundation laid down by "Mourner" (and the "Some People Fall" debut) in a musical and lyrical sense.
In addition to being the best CAINA album to date, "Temporary Antennae" is also Andrew's most intense and oppressive-sounding so far while at the same time being the most pop-oriented CA?NA album yet as new influences from '80s new wave also make their way into the sound picture of "Temporary Antennae" alongside those that combine the traits of raw black metal and post-rock.
Due on September 30, "Temporary Antennae" will feature the following track listing:
01. Intro – Manuscript Found In Unmarked Grave, 1918
02. Ten Went Up River
03. Willows And Whippoorwills
04. Tobacco Beetle
05. Larval Door
06. …And Ivy Wound Round Him
07. Them Golds And Brass
08. Petals And Bloodbowls
09. Temporary Antennae
10. None Shall Die
