los angeles based anie seems to be an intentionally mysterious artist (or group of artists?). mystery aside, the 'lovekill EP' is solid music. dark, brooding, lushly produced music that is hard to classify. touches of chamber pop, freak folk, classicist pop, and ultra modern sounds.
lush strings, strange noise touches, spatters of percussion, vocals that switch from warm intimacy to cold androgynous harmonies, delivering dark, sad, romantic lyrics. i don't know what to say about it except that i like it.
oh yeah, and it's free. get it here. the band's website is kind of confusing, but if you sit on the first page, you can see an artsy video project.
