L'ombre Medicine for the Meaningless
- Words: Heath K. Hignight
- Label: Ant-Zen
Formerly an industrial noise label, Ant-Zen continues to push its reputation into new territories with artists like David Thrussell (a.k.a. Snog), Squaremeter (the erstwhile German terror junglist Panacea), and now L'ombre. Based in Canada, Stephen Sawyer's L'ombre debut moves nimbly between the harsh post-industrial landscape of Ant-Zen's back catalog and a stereographic ambience, where seemingly planar wisps of sound lurch into your listening space as if from thin air. And that's only the first track, "Nowhere"; "Vagrant" invokes the longing tones of Ryuichi Sakamoto's "Grief" from Discord (and check Amon Tobin's thundering drum & bass remix of that piece). Definitely a rich release for Ant-Zen.
