4. SHORT INFO:

Anenon's tenor saxophone breathes an emotive contemplation on loss, meshed with sustained piano and field recordings. 'Moons Melt Milk Light' is a hyper-personal statement contained in a visceral beauty.

LA native Anenon returns with a highly anticipated new album 'Moons Melt Milk Light' on Tonal Union, bearing his most personal, expressive, and arresting works to date. Anenon is the ongoing solo studio and live project of Brian Allen Simon, whom since 2010 has released multiple albums and EPs to critical acclaim, including the highly revered 'Tongue' (2018) and 'Petrol' (2016).

'Moons Melt Milk Light' is direct, efficient, and unwavering in its immediacy. Anenon departs from the electronics of previous works, and embarks on a reductive, almost entirely acoustic approach consisting of piano, tenor saxophone, bass clarinet, and field recordings. All of the music was improvised with everything recorded as either a first or second take with no edits. Any layering happened fast and in the moment, and yet the sonic architecture of the whole feels both planned and refined.

"I feel a kinetic and messy honesty that doesn't exist in any of the other music I've ever made. There is also a sense of being settled, of calm. There is no faking it here."

Anenon - Previous Press / Quotes

"Anenon straddles the line between esoteric and accessible with ease and grace, a trait attributable to Simon's self-taught style" - Pitchfork, Tongue (2018)

"Anenon creates a world built from the snug comfort of rain and the quiet joy that comes from solitude." - Pitchfork, Tongue (2018)

"Anenon straddles the line between esoteric and accessible with ease and grace, a trait attributable to Simon's self-taught style" - Pitchfork, Petrol (2016)

"Petrol finds the artist coming into his own, interpreting his life experience into sublime electro-acoustic music." - RA, Petrol (2016)

"Campana," "Pure" and "Verso" are all exceptional. In its own way, each is exquisitely played and a pleasure to take in. - Exclaim, Tongue (2018)

"The first few listens don't disclose the full complexities of Simon's work - it remains semi-horizontal and distant, like a tired shrug. But after several repeats, the circular motifs begin to, if not get under the skin, then at least claw at it a bit" - The Wire, Tongue (2018)

"There's velocity and suspense in equal proportion" - The Wire, Petrol (2016)

"There's velocity and suspense in equal proportion, a sense of expansion that evokes the metropolitan area's sprawl." - The Wire, Petrol (2016)

"Skittering strings and spectral sax luxuriate in gossamer textures" - The Wire, Petrol (2016)
