ANIMAH “Animah” C19 (Solid Melts)

Major chillout time. But don’t relax – these cold climates are the icy attention Animah’s paying to those who have wronged her or hurt her. The vibes originate from a dull ache of heartbreak, radiating out as a defense mechanism, a barrier repelling the attention of strangers, maybe even the attention of those she knows and loves. “Animah” is four frozen tracks of luscious synth-pop, the attraction of the melodies at odds with the heart of the message. A great addition to any goth-pop radio station mining the first-wave hits of the 1980s. I think I just gave away my go-to radio station – figure it out if you’re smart enough! (You’re probably smart enough.) But buy this tape first.
