Gatefold LP version. This is the debut full-length album from Aloa Input -- Cico Beck (aka Joasihno), Marcus Grassl (formerly part of Missent To Denmark) and Florian Kreier (aka Angela Aux) Anysome essentially resembles a huge map that covers most of the musical worlds and sonic landscapes we know. Drawing from a long list of influences all three members agree upon (e.g. Animal Collective, Eno, Beck, The Beatles, Morricone, Can, The Notwist), Aloa Input are well aware of the album's world-spanning approach, mentioning "guitars from Cape Town to Portland, beats from Berlin to Chicago, and vocals from NYC to Düsseldorf." And yet there's more to Anysome: the exotic detours, the band's willingness to experiment and to go that extra mile for a good hook, the hypnotic singing and electrified horizons, all neatly placed on top of minimalist bass lines. With the album's "Prelude" we enter a world that seems to be coming at us, rolling up like the flickering images of a Laterna Magika: mellow birdsong, paired with hazy strawberry field sounds. Some of the other stops include world pop in search of greater truths, burning bushes (and Kraut references) in Africa, a mirage reminiscent of cLOUDDEAD, all kinds of euphoric choruses with melancholy hatches underneath, plus the recurring sense that people get older.
