Duo's second album, was released by Norwegian label Humbug, 2004.
Music was recorded between 12/2002 and 7/2003 in Porvoo, Finland.
Brad Rose/Foxy Digitalis: "Finnish sonic sorcerer extraordinaires Anti and Uton have been running of a string of successful collaborations over the past few years. Anti is best known for his
work in the quintessential Finnish group, Mother Goose. And Uton is, well... Uton. If you don't know Uton's work at this point, you're seriously missing out on some of the most inspired mystic sounds coming out of the land of the Suomi. When these two get together, it sounds as though the world is on the verge of extinction.
"Borrowed Antennas" is only vaguely similar to this duo's previous effort, "These Rains Were Tales Before." Where the latter explored more minimal, and often acoustic, domains, "Borrowed Antennas" is a mighty headfuck.
As most the world knows, the Gulf Coast area of the United States has been pummelled by not one, but two hurricanes in the past month. Well, "Borrowed Antennas" is like the dense chaos of a hurricane. Or at least what I imagine it's like to be in a hurricane. Layer upon layer of sonic dust splatters the walls of this album, constantly bouncing off each other and punching out holes. This is massive and sprawling. Raw intensity spews like an endless rain. It's fantastic. I feel like I'm being swallowed whole and spit back out.
There are six tracks here, clocking in at just over 45 minutes. That's a hefty chunk of fuzz to traverse, but it is well worth the effort. Rivers of distorted guitars and feedback squalls mount quite an attack, but it feels good. It feels right. This is catharcism defined."
