Today Buzz Records releases ANAMAI debut EP.
If you aren’t familiar, ANAMAI is Anna Mayberry who plays in HSY (pronounced Hussy and caught their Ottawa show on Oct 10th)
While HSY is noise and punk-rock.
ANAMAI is a vast contrast.
The music on this three track EP is filled with lo-fi dreamy atmospheric folk-pop sound.
Here is a blurb:
Written in a tiny, frozen studio apartment in Montreal, and recorded with her friend and producer, David Psutka (Egyptrixx, Hiawatha), the EP is a stunning introduction to the world of ANAMAI.
The melodies of “Altar Coals” dreamily drift along, exposing a great pop hook at the song’s core.
“Black Crow” demonstrates Mayberry’s command of storytelling, featuring a call and response vocal sung along to a sleepy, melancholic riff.
“Mute Flames” finds Mayberry’s voice layering and dancing over itself, a striking effect that allows her to explore just how minimal her music can be.
The EP is available digitally on iTunes & Bandcamp, as well as on tape (limited to a run of 50 copies).
I really loved hearing these three tracks.
Wish she had more materials to record.
