Art-Pop Ensemble Anathallo Receives Rave Reviews for

 Canopy Glow Coming Out on Pioneering Indie Label Anticon


Under the guidance of WHY? frontman and Anticon co-owner Yoni Wolf, Canopy Glow was mixed by Eli Crews (WHY?) Tony Espinoza (New Order) and Neil Strauch (Chin Up Chin Up) and mastered by Mike Wells (John Vanderslice). The result is a fully developed album with music that showcases Anathallo’s energy and inspiration, as well as the evolution of their sound.




“Swooning harmonies and delicate laptop-pop arrangements abound on this Midwestern collective’s new album.”

Best CD I’ve Heard: Week of  11/14/08

“I'm also listening to: The new Anathallo record, Canopy Glow, took me a couple listens to get into, but I'm warming up to it. The sound is really full and intense. Every time I go to a music festival I meet people who are into this Chicago band.”





“Not limiting their lyrical or instrumental content, the songs never feel ostentatious or forced. The horn section fits perfectly, as do the bells…”





“Each song is a perfect blast of emotion and passion that flow in the same vein of bands like

Arcade Fire, Fleet Foxes and My Brightest Diamond.”





“…these Michigan transplants take a popular indie-rock template – a high hook-to-groove ratio and a mood of slightly wistful romanticism – and replace the bulk of the usual guitars-and-stuff that usually fills it out with something a lot more interesting.”





Featured Music Video “Bells”




“Noni’s Field is a dream-like Japanese whisper, with gentle shakers and gossamer harmonies by Erica Froman and mastermind Matt Joynt giving way to piano melody that Coldplay would kill for.”





“Anathallo’s Canopy Glow is the standout music release this week, one that is sure to end up on many "best of 2008" album lists.”
