Reviews of Anticon

Maniac Meat

Sometimes I can send off a record review in ten minutes. Excited by the tunes in my headphones or emanating from my computer’s tinny speakers, my fingers fly across the keys with artistic inspiration. Other times, it takes time and a few repeat spins of the disc to let the music settle into my brain. Tobacco’s Maniac Meat is one such record. You could ask, what’s happening here? A better question is, what isn’t?


Playing in subway stations wasn’t that fun for us At first it was, but now it’s getting old First it was, but now I’m getting cold - “Playing in Subway Stations” I owe my fascination, adoration, and patronage of Anticon artists to my friend Nick. The most taciturn person I know, he is also the reason I became vegan. Not particularly conversant, he may not even know either of these things, though his quiet example has been profound and influential.

Book of Bad Breaks

A wildly irreverent trip into your own mind is all this entire review can say about both the band and their album, [Book of Bad Breaks](http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000O5AYD4?ie=UTF8&tag=feminrevie-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B000O5AYD4). With driving rhythms and a smoky, erotic lead singer, Thee More Shallows has a sound unique to any I have ever experienced. In their song “Night at the Knight School,” you are taking on a strange head-trip only reminiscent of Pink Floyd.
