Anomoanon, The: Joji
Hailing from the same rural Kentucky town that birthed fellow longhairs MyMorning Jacket, The Anomoanon's music sythesizes backwoods folk andarena-ready anthems. Combining Ned Oldham's familiar croon with theacoustic textures of Led Zeppelin and inspirational dirge of Crazy Horseinto a sound that seems so natural, one wonders if this record wasn't justwaiting around for these guys to discover it. Saying that this is theband's most accomplished recording is downright redundant, since it's alsoone of the finest of its kind by anyone. In a sea of glorified bar bandsposing as hipster revivalists, Joji finds The Anomoanon dropping from thesky and landing on both feet with a rhythmic stomp that rattles every bonein your body.
