EDITORS’ NOTES

On her first album as ANOHNI, the indie singer formerly known as Antony Hegarty gets political. Hopelessness’ track titles read like they're yanked from a DC hardcore band’s setlist, but there isn’t a snarling yelp or guitar assault to be heard here. Instead, ANOHNI’s immaculate voice—which echoes Alison Moyet, Billie Holiday, and Boy George—takes on more depth than ever amidst Oneohtrix Point Never and Hudson Mohawke's experimental programming. She seethingly excoriates Barack Obama, brings urgency to climate change on “4 DEGREES,” and is inconceivably graceful on “Drone Bomb Me.” Every note just drips with pain and beauty.

after a 2nd listening...

well produced and she has a great voice, at times there seems to be an influence of Nina Simone or Joan Armatrading. beyond the lyrics the overall sound of this album has a sameness to it, not a bad thing and in a way it ties the album together. while I don't think this album will get much or any air time it is a good listen, a little depressing but it's a good (and hopeful) "foothold" in her music career.
