Stereolab’s co-founder Tim Gane has teamed up with synth player Holger Zapf and former Stereolab drummer Joe Dillworth to form a new trio named Cavern of Anti-Matter. They will be releasing their debut album, void beats / invocation trex, on February 19 via Duophonic and previously the band had shared “Melody in High Feedback Tones.” Now they’ve put out another song from the record, opening track “Tardis Cymbals.” Since the title references Doctor Who (the TARDIS being The Doctor’s time and space machine), it’s not impossible to think that some of the music from the 53-year-old British science fiction show might have made an impact on Gane (such as the music of 1960s electronic music pioneer Delia Derbyshire). “Tardis Cymbals” isn’t a million miles removed from Derbyshire’s influential original electronic arrangement of the Doctor Who theme back in 1963.

Void beats / invocation trex features such special guests as Deerhunter’s Bradford Cox, Mouse on Mars’ Jan St. Werner, and Spacemen 3’s Sonic Boom. Gane had this to say about the project in a press release back when the album was announced: “Cavern of Anti-Matter are spectrum addicts, setting up tiny rhythmic cells and expanding on them in certain ways, splitting the melody and stretching out. The melodic movement is much slower due to the lack of words. At the moment, the Cavern sound is more what I want to do.”
