Nathaniel Johnstone and his band return for more excellent storytelling of both steampunk and mythologically influenced persuasion with their latest full album, The Antikythera Mechanism.
The all-new, fourteen-song full album contains musical journeys with tentacled friends, 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 to enjoy listening to in your favorite 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. 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 and improved as storytellers and musicians.
Which only means they’ll continue to get better every release if they stay on this track and each new album will be a fabulous addition to the steampunk music lover’s collection.
