Anenon

Anenon, aka composer Brian Allen Simon, is set to release his fourth album, ‘Tongue’, on 5 Feb next year. The follow-up to last year’s ‘Petrol’, for the new LP’s recording Simon left his native LA and decamped to a sixteenth century villa in Tuscany earlier this year. The first result of this work can be heard in ‘Verso’, a transportive layering of loops that swirls around you.

“I live in the city of ephemerality”, says Simon. “The omnipresent LA light soaks my mind and body and moves me forward towards a dark and inconsistent absence of remembrance. Around me, histories are bought and sold daily in an unplanned, urban and suburban dwelling that on paper makes zero sense, but in reality has become a haven for wide open creative thinking and action that couldn’t exist anywhere else. No matter where I go, the music that I make comes from this state of mind”.

He continues: “I wanted to make music that can live inside of anywhere one finds themselves: city or country. [‘Tongue’ is] a series of shifting moods and melodies that through the heart, mind, hands, throat, and tongue sing an outpouring of metaphysical, nuanced psychedelic passing truth”.
