Song(s) of the Day # 1,056 Antena

Now this I think is fascinating. A French band who found themselves on the Belgian offshoot label of Factory Records Les Disques du Crepescule in the early eighties. Their 1982 compilation Camino del Sol is a deeply strange creation of electro bossanova, nodding at Tropicalia, hinting at similar sounds being made elsewhere by the likes of Young Marble Giants but all the while expressing an odd futuristic personality quite of its own. Oh and To Climb the Cliff particularly is something of a lost Post Punk masterpiece.
