This is the debut full-length album from Aloa Input -- Cico Beck (aka
Joasihno), Marcus Grassl (formerly part of Missent To Denmark) and
Florian Kreier (aka Angela Aux) Anysome essentially resembles a huge map
that covers most of the musical worlds and sonic landscapes we know. Drawing
from a long list of influences all three members agree upon (e.g. Animal
Collective, Eno, Beck, The Beatles, Morricone, Can, The Notwist), Aloa
Input are well aware of the album's world-spanning approach, mentioning ''guitars
from Cape Town to Portland, beats from Berlin to Chicago, and vocals from NYC
to Dusseldorf.'' And yet there's more to Anysome: the exotic detours, the band's
willingness to experiment and to go that extra mile for a good hook, the hypnotic
singing and electrified horizons, all neatly placed on top of minimalist bass lines.
With the album's ''Prelude'' we enter a world that seems to be coming at us, rolling
up like the flickering images of a Laterna Magika: mellow birdsong, paired with
hazy strawberry field sounds. Some of the other stops include world pop in search
of greater truths, burning bushes (and Kraut references) in Africa, a mirage
reminiscent of cLOUDDEAD, all kinds of euphoric choruses with melancholy
hatches underneath, plus the recurring sense that people get older.
