Anika – yang yang

I went to see Anika last night.  The show was quite enjoyable.  The Nico comparison is obvious, but the backing band sounds slightly more hip (keyboards) than the VU (guitar).

I really enjoyed the set, and the highlight for me was their tune “Yang yang.”  Yoko Ono cover FYI.

Also playing were the Starving Weirdos, Humboldt’s best particulate-noise band.   I enjoyed the first tune a lot — with a whiny feedback loop that seemed to be at the core of the song.  Only to find out that it was unintentional.  Whoops.  But that tells you a lot about the Starving Weirdos — the experience, acoustics and responses are part of the music itself.
