Anika releasing new EP in April
BEAK> just played NYC last night and here is some related news involving Berlin artist Anika who has a new EP out in April. Signed to Geoff Barrow’s Ivada record label (and Stone’s Throw in America), Anika’s 2010 debut was produced by Barrow and featured BEAK> as her backing band, 2/3rds of whom were also in her touring unit.
The Anika EP features leftovers and remixes from her debut, including her great cover of Chromatics’ “In the City” that had been streaming on Stones Thow’s SoundCloud page for a while (and played live while here in 2011) and you can listen to that below. The EP also features covers of The Kinks’ “I Go to Sleep” which was on the album), The Crystals’ “He Hit Me (And it Felt Like a Kiss),” and Shocking Blue’s “Love Buzz,” plus dub versions of previous singles “Yang Yang” and “No One’s There” by Bristol producer Ratman.
