Because heaven probably smells lovely like string beans and drying flowers, right? Antony Hegarty had a WPS1-hosted release party for his new EP Another World in a purple-hued room with a gang of wooly robe-wearing women (including issue 54 Gen F, Sahra Motalebi) harmonizing wordlessly in the corners. Antony, dressed in a silken cream-colored gown, corralled everyone into one corner for an a capella version of "Another World," warbled through with great grace. Then the chorus marched out the room and upstairs where they performed atop a spiral staircase. Antony's voice and body were like the sea in light breeze. On the way out, you could see the office they transformed into his dressing room where the door was ajar, and there were so many little candles.
