LA’s Anenon aka Brian Allen Simon has announced the follow up to last year’s wonderful album Petrol. Set to arrive on February 8th through Friends of Friends, Tongue was recorded near Palaia in Italy’s Tuscany region last April. Simon lived temporarily in a 16th century small villa “to attempt to find something pure and ostensibly forgotten—soul music—not in the rhythm and blues sense, but something capable of reaching deep into our DNA coding and dimly remembered past”, explains the press release. This move, it adds, “is a reflection of Anenon’s drive to find a setting staggeringly gorgeous enough to match the iridescence of the compositions.” As with previous efforts, on Tongue we find Anenon exploring and merging an array of genres including jazz, classical, ambient and electronica.
‘Verso’ is the first stunning taste to be lifted from the album and you can stream it below.
