Anya Marina “Felony Flats”

April 15, 2012

Anya Marina is a former KSCU DJ, but she was before my time, like Mike TV. I was here for Faco and Naked Rob, though. You can’t have everything in life. I have to admit I wish I was around to meet her, because musically she’s fucking amazing. Good for her for being on Atlantic. I wish her the best.
“Body Knows Best” gets the album off to a good start with some straightforward power-pop, complete with tambourine in the chorus and la-la’ing in the bridge. The sound is a bit trapped in the mid-to-late ’90s, with a bassline reminiscent of Harvey Danger’s “Flagpole Sitta.”
Absolute bliss can be found with “Hot Button,” which is not about a stolen dose of heroin. Overall, this is a slower track and an excellent choice as a leadoff track when performing live.
“Flinty” is catchy. The melody is similar to Tegan and Sara crossed with Blondie’s “Hanging on a Telephone.” The guitar is simple but effective. The hot summer ballad is clearly “Heart Stops.” It’s the music to play in the background when you’ve been playing the same Zelda title for eight weeks, and you’re this close to beating all the side quests.
The title track is last and broods with piano and Marina’s voice. It’s another fine effort, the whole album. Not really hearing anything compromised on the sound, and that’s a good thing.
