the anechronosis * rush

heard this on the radio yesterday and simply could not tell if it was a record from the mid-
Sixties or a contemporary release

*  “anechronosis” = anachronism + necrosis = my ungainly but necessary coinage, first unpacked properly in the Haunted Audio Wire piece,  to pinpoint that curious “undead” quality exuded by musical artifacts that seems neither fully modern nor properly period-bound, but instead belongs to some ersatz limbo, a Zeit without a Geist.  Back in 2006 Jack White's works were prime inspiration for this neologism, along with Goldfrapp
