New Music: Antony & The Johnsons, Another World

Filed under: Download, Indie Pop, Song — Tags: , — Greg @ 9:56 pm


Song: Another World
Artist: Antony & The Johnsons
Album: The Crying Light
Label: Secretly Canadien Records
Notes: 1st single from LP
Analysis: I could try to sit here for a few hours and try to pick out the intricacies of ‘Another World’, and think about how to discuss how deep singer Antony Hegarty is, but I won’t. Because this is one of the most boring songs I’ve ever heard in my life. Slow and dragging, with melodramatic lyrics (I’m gonna miss the sea / I’m gonna miss the snow / I’m gonna miss the beach / Miss the things that grow) – by the way, he also is going to miss the trees and animals. I’m all for a good sappy song, but how about putting some fucking personality into it? I understand that Antony & The Johnsons are a darling of a lot of indie sites, and if this is you’re type of thing then fine. But you’re either (a) a very emotional woman, or (b) the wimpiest guy in the Jamba Juice store that you are reading this in.
