OUT NOW: ANECDATA’S ‘YOU DO NOT DO’
Anecdata goes pop! Well, it’s a relative term.
The powerchords and rock drums are dialled back on ‘You Do Not Do’, in favour of keyboard basses, piercing synths and drums that go ‘BSHHHHJJ!’
Check out the Devo-style melodies and driving beats of ‘Metronomika’, satirical lyrics of ‘Ignoramus’ and ‘Dollar Dollar’ and the eerie, droning ‘Elisa Lam’.
ALSO: ANECDATA’S ‘BUT HER EMAILS…’
Don’t like Donald Trump? Like some synths with your guitars? Here’s the album for you.
Entirely written in the first month of Trump’s presidency, ‘But Her Emails…’ is Anecdata’s attempt to bottle the uncertainty and chaos of those first few weeks of the beginning of the end. Before he fired the head of the FBI, before the ‘Russia thing’ got serious, and when punching Nazis was for fun rather than survival, the administration was a goldmine of soundbites and ineptitude – documented here on songs like ‘Bowling Green Massacre’, ‘Executive Order’ and ‘Never Clever Ever’.
