Best of 2018 #32: Anton Hunter – “Article XI”


There’s always the sense of a massive vision to this album, and it’s how Anton Hunter keeps the focus on the microcosm of the moment that cinches this recording as something special.  In my original write-up, I state that traversing this album is like a journey through the funhouse.  And while its lyricism, often absurd and capable of inciting tiny epiphanies, often does command center stage, the benefit of time slowly reveals that it’s the competing, complementary perspectives that is the true driving force… like watching simultaneous evolutions of worlds inside of worlds.

Released on Efpi Records.
