Aloha and Anathallo



This spring, Aloha hits the road in support of their latest release, Light Works. A quieter, more focused presentation, as compared to 2005's Some Echoes, Light Works is a classic, detailed, melodic indie release with several experimental tendencies. Beyond the spring tour, they’ll complete work on a new full-length album that is due out in the fall of 2008.

The band plays the Midwest and east coast with the religious-experience-inducing (if I can use that as a descriptor) Anathallo. On that note, if you live within say, sixty miles of either listed shows and you plan on missing Anathallo, just start kicking yourself right now. As impressed as I am with Aloha, Anathallo takes a listening room and turns it into a surreal narrative, embracing multiple drums, various languages, and a superb knowledge of song-building. Check out their "Kasa No Hone" video and a download of Hanasakajijii (Four: A Great Wind, More Ash) from their 2006 album, Floating World. Then download Aloha’s “Body Buzz”.
