"Eye Weekly's Disc-overy Of The Week"

"Love, Anna hotwire their hearts with the scorching guitar screech of Goo-vintage Sonic Youth ("Carley Sparks"), early Mercury Rev ("Zenaida") and even Ontario's own space-rock cadets, Sianspheric ("RockandRoll Ring Finger"), to invigorating effect."

Love, Anna was born and raised in the city of Toronto, Canada. Three friends of varied artistic temperament and musical taste began playing together in the early part of the century with no purpose other than to pass the time. Enamored with the fin de siecle post rock achievements of Yo La Tengo, Mogwai and so many others, they began to dabble in slow-burn groove-based instrumentals and off kilter 4/4 rockers.

With the addition of a drummer and later a cellist, songs found structure, began to coalesce and soon a distinctive sound was discovered. The material was raw to be sure, but always aspired towards a certain beauty, that intangible, elusive thing that if pressed the band itself could not describe; maybe it would be best to call it pixie dust. But instead of flying off to Neverland, a path which had led so many a Def Leppard astray, the group chose to stay grounded and toil within the boundaries of DIY obscurity.

Ultimately, for Love, Anna experience is something to be gained, not relied upon, virtuosity is not always obvious and having an agenda only subverts the happy accidents and surprises that life keeps in store for us.
