Ozzy Osbourne fails to recall a rather hazy period of his life -- the '90s. -

'Flétta' finds its beauty in a bare-bones approach. Bjork takes the lead as Hegarty provides a somber, strikingly minimalist piano part that turns progressively bubbly as it gains momentum. There are no other instruments or adornments besides those two famous voices, so the track glides by with a purposefully airy feel.
For Hegarty, it's yet another successful collaborative effort. His recent "remix" of ambient composer Oneohtrix Point Never on the title track to his excellent 'Returnal' was a daring work that turned electronics into a similarly powerful organic bed of piano and vocals. For Bjork, it's just great to get a rare glimpse into her pure voice without some of the electronic flourishes that usually define her work.
'Swanlights,' the fourth LP from Antony and the Johnsons, drops Oct. 12 via Secretly Canadian.
