currently listening: anathallo-canopy glow

In Uncategorized on February 3, 2009 at 5:36 pm


Finally got this after deciding I couldn’t wait any longer for the vinyl. Some comments I’ve seen has said this is like Sufjan–one problem, however is Anathallo had their full orchestral bent going strong back in ’02 and ’03, just when Sufjan was getting his wings. Canopy Glow maintains the feel of Floating World though I was hoping for a few numbers closer to “Don’t Kid Yourself, You Need a Physician,” but those days are over. Interesting enough, the last song of “Canopy” was followed on my iTunes with the “Aaron Held His Peace” from Sparrows and honestly, I wasn’t sure of the difference. The same quiet has always been there, Anathallo has it leveraged towards its full maximum effect. And Noni’s Field and The River are remarkable songs. Vid for “Bells” after jump.
