Anika- "Yang Yang" ‡ VIDEO

Videosadmin4 Comments

I have several record labels I can usually trust to hand me something that peaks my interest. Stones Throw is one of 'em, but this is surprisingly outside of their comfort zone. Hip hop is their main squeeze, but releasing this project is understandable. It's almost too interesting not to.

Anika sings, Portishead's Geoff Barrow produces, and the boys from Beak> bring the instrumentation. This thing is a serious mutant. It calls out to the heydays of female-fronted post-punk, but in a much creepier way.

The album is coming this November. [edit] It has also been brought to my attention this song is a Yoko Ono cover. The original is pretty badass.
