Tongue is the fourth LP by Los Angeles-based Anenon (or Brian Allen Simon to his landlord). Thanks to a press release the length of War and Peace, I’ve learned that it was recorded in Tuscany on a disenchanted break away from Trump’s America. It finds our man Brian lining up lots of tinkling piano arpeggios with warm synth drones, as well as having a good soft toot or two on the saxophone for good measure. That’ll show Donald!

Getting away from it all. It works, you know… (helpful advice as I type; frozen-fingered, glancing wistfully over my left shoulder in the direction of a weakly sunlit streaky window, away in a corner there above Clinton’s head.) A break in Tuscany, for example, as this electronica guy Brian Allen Simon from smoggy, sooty L.A. did -- well it certainly did wonders for his health and general outlook… Anyway, Brian’s latest album under his Anenon handle has freshly landed on my reviewer’s desk this crisp afternoon, and it’s a jaunty little blessing.

‘Two For C’ -- unless I’m very much mistaken -- follows in the vein of Terry Riley’s ‘In C’ magnum opus, with looped keyboard arpeggios augmented by a loose tenor sax which explores the scope of notes within that key, an organ joyfully billowing atop and a piano loping gently underneath. Excellent. Then there’s the even more sunny, energetic electroacoustics and rapid arpeggios of ‘Verso’ - beautiful... and some very taut prepared-piano strings get a fair old plucking and hammering on ‘Tongue’. Then a sax gently breathes over all that activity. Happy, happy, we’re all so happy and this is a lot of fun. A change, after all, is as good as a rest. I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to the rest. Soon.
