Anika pics from ATP, Glasslands show tonight

Anika in Asbury Park
Anika

“Anika, not one for small talk, has a cold stare that’s really not cold at all. It creates a distance between singer and audience that works to lift the show into something distinct and not at all casual. She takes it all in while on stage, never breaking the slick veneer of the performance to let any mundane moment of realism slip through. It makes for an iconic and captivating show, comforting yet somber, since I guess some have come to expect a singer to say hello or introduce a song here and there during the night. Unnecessary chit chat isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, however. The dubby, meandering nature of some of the songs and her spoken-word style of singing adds to the off-kilter, experimental mood.” [Sentimentalist]

If you missed Anika last week at LPR or didn’t have the cash to make it to see her at ATP (pictures in this post), she plays tonight – 10/6 – at Glasslands with Slowdance, Ducktails and Hard Bop before heading out on tour. If you’ve heard her amazing album, she definitely works that Nico/Ute Lemper vibe to the hilt — icy icy cool. And her band, including the rhythm section of BEAK>, are fantastic. Tickets are still available, you should go to this.
