CD Review: The Antikythera Mechanism


Nathaniel Johnstone Band - Antikythera Mechanism

Nathaniel Johnstone and his band return for more excellent storytelling, of both steampunk style and mythologically influenced persuasion on their latest full album “The Antikythera Mechanism”.

The all new, 14 song full album, contains musical journeys with tentacled friends, throughout stories of yore and wonder and tales of heroes and villains from mythology.
Each music to sing along to and dance to your heart’s content, or simply enjoy listening to in your favourite place(s).

The band’s signature sound, full of ethnic and belly dance music influences has clearly grown and matured on this album, making it one coherent and strong collection of songs that keep the listener’s attention from the first to the last note easily, and even then you may very well find yourself humming one of the tunes you just heard. But not to worry, if you get stuck with one of these songs in your head you’ll at least have a good mental soundtrack running along with your thoughts.

If you’ve listened to the artist’s older work, and especially the previous release Narratives (which is awesome in its own right), you’ll notice how much the band has grown since that last release, and improved as storytellers and musicians full stop. Which only means they’ll continue to get better every release if they stay on this road, and each new album will be a fabulous addition to every steampunk music lover’s collection.
