Boomkat Product Review:
Anenon is Brian Allen Simon, an artist and the founder of the Non Projects record label. Brian mines the intersection of electronics, jazz, improvisation and "spiritual atmospherics".
"Born out of a series of improvisational sessions with friend and collaborator Jon-Kyle Mohr, Anenon’s ‘Petrol’ is an album about his native city of Los Angeles, but not the Los Angeles you know. It’s a city built as much upon the frenzied kinetic energy of its freeways as its moments of thoughtful, early morning solitude. In Anenon’s mind, an Angeleno is “one who understands the beauty of distance and the consistencies of irregularity” and those juxtapositions can be found throughout ‘Petrol’, a spacious album that needs to be lived in to be believed.
Those juxtapositions extend to the sonic makeup of ‘Petrol’, from the tactile bliss of opener “Body” to the album closing title track’s climactic bombast. Out March 4 on Friends of Friends, ‘Petrol’ is the culmination of years of work and a deeply refined sensibility, a combination that seems to fit both label and artist like a glove."
