Vick’s used Anathallo’s “Yuki! Yuki! Yuki!” from Floating World in one of their commercials a couple of years ago.  While a bit odd, it’s cool to hear their music on tv, and the money they got actually helped fund the recording of Canopy Glow.  We’ve said it many times, but check out this band.  A truly amazing band that makes beautiful music.

So, Clint, Caitie, Laurie and I checked out Anathallo (actually pronounced Ann-uh-THALL-oh. Surprise!) at The Middle East upstairs. I’ve only been to the downstairs venue, which despite the usual crowd and lack of climate control, I really like. The upstairs part was like a secret back room club, sandwiched between TT the Bear’s (where someone was clearly playing louder than opener Sam Amidon, who was in the same room as me) and the basement, and the front part of the restaurant/bar/ZuZu. Sam Amidon… well, he made some interesting noise. Let’s just say that I’ve never been at a show of any size where people in the crowd actually SHUSHED other people. Caitie, on the other hand, loved Sam Amidon. I think it kinda turned her on, or something. 

Anyhow, Anathallo was amazing. Absolutely amazing. It was really cool to see the band jammed up on the tiny stage, making all that beautiful noise with all their drums and horns and moogs, etc. They clearly had a great time playing, and the TheraFlu induced “good time” being had by frontman Matt only added to the fun (at one point, he was jamming out so hardcore he forgot that he was supposed to be playing guitar). Long story short, the evening was a great mix of Floating World and Canopy Glow, which was really nice. SUCH a good band. It was really cool “being there” to hear some of the Floating World stuff – that album is way close to the top of my all-time list. Overall, it was a great show, and it was a lot of fun. Check this band out, support them, Buy their records and merch. Like Clint said in an earlier post, this band deserves a LOT more credit than they are getting, so let’s turn it up for them!
