Lush and layered Indie Pop from The Annuals
I put 4 songs from this release on my iPod, and they are:
Complete, or Completing – This is a beautifully sung, joyful tune that makes me feel happier. By the time it really gets going (3 ½ minutes into its nearly 6 minutes) it is an absolutely irresistible groove.
Carry Around – This is a dreamy and strange tune with moments of directed chaos that sounds like it would be a lot of fun to see live.
Chase You Off – This tune changes several times. I like it and I’m not sure if it is because or in spite of the incomprehensible lyrics.
The Bull, and the Goat – I mentioned danceable pop tunes. I love bands with lots of musicians because they can produce a lush, full sound like this.
It’s funny. I was reading the Wikipedia entry on The Annuals and apparently they have appeared in “Spin.com, AOLMusicIndie.com, Stereogum, I Guess I’m Floating, the Underrated, Brooklyn Vegan, and EarFarm (among others) – earning them a newfound reputation for being a ‘blog band.’” What can I say? If you haven’t heard them on the radio, where else are you going to hear them?
Check out their website, where you can buy their new album, Such Fun.
