Don't underestimate Anticon is a mantra that should be repeated ad nauseum until your throat creaks forgiveness. Here is their latest missive from Son Lux who has apparently already released an album on the label but which has passed me by in the slew of other things going on to distract me/previous dithering of the not-always-on-the-ball press and distribution arm this side of the pond. I spent the entire time eating breakfast this morning trying to work out what this reminded me of and the answer has come to me in a flash of inspiration. Grizzly Bear. The singer has the same quivering tongue, the songs are complicated neo-chamber pop with lush harmonies. There are lots of tinkling pianos, big kettle drums and the kind of orchestration that may grace a Sufjan Stevens album. In fact this at times recalls a less progressive, less mentally disturbed 'Age of Adz'. The second track 'All the Right Things' however would not sound at all out of place on Grizzly Bear's 'Veckatimest' opus. It's certainly a thing of rare beauty however with some madcap horns thrown into the mix for good measure. There are also touches of the massively underrated, current whereabouts unknown Anticon heroes Thee More Shallows. So to that end we could add Grandaddy, Mercury Rev and Arcade Fire to the list of groups these lots could posibly resemble depending upon your viewpoint. As usual with any indie rock thats been made PMPP (Post-'Merriweather Post Pavillion') theres a trickle down of that records joyous choral optimism. Recommended.
