Song of the Day: Anika - I Go To Sleep
Posted at 2:50pm, 12/9/2010
Geoff Barrow of Portishead and Beak> produced the new selft-titled LP from Berlin / Bristol / London based artist Anika. Anika was recorded live in 12 days, with her three band mates, Geoff Barrow, Billy Fuller and Matt Williams, together in one room and no overdubs. The resulting collaboration is a political/trashy/discordant/reggae/German/old school Bristol/punk-funk sound - all sown together into a collection of classic, bristling songs infused with other-worldliness. Download the first single, "I Go To Sleep" below.
Anika was released December 7th, 2010 on Stones Throw Records.
