A version to appear on www.flavorpill.net
Norway’s Annie, much like M.I.A., has ascended to popularity vis-à-vis the international blogging cognoscenti. So quickly in fact, that Pitchfork named her single, “Chewing Gum” within the top 100 singles of 2000-2004 and “Heartbeat,” the best single of 2004. Her sound is pop with electro undertones, and quite simply, it’s the most addictive thing you’re likely to hear in some time. With high profile remixes from Royksopp and Headman, and some production on her forthcoming LP, Anniemal, from Richard X, the result is a perfect mix of studio-savvy and can’t-get-it-out-of-your-head pop sensibility. Tonight is her live US debut.
Note: Annie is joined by James Friedman, Max Pask, and the Misshapes Djs.
