Albums of the Year 2016 No: 6
Rough Trade Exclusive White Vinyl.
Anohni, the singer of Antony and the Johnsons, releases her new album Hopelessness on Rough Trade / Secretly Canadian. A collaboration with Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke, Hopelessness is a dance record with soulful vocals and lyrics addressing subjects including surveillance, drone warfare and ecocide. The album seeks to disrupt assumptions about popular music through the collision of electronic sound and highly politicized lyrics. It's a contemporary, seductive and cutting edge statement from a true one off.
