otherworldly soprano sax meets grounding kosmische sonics for a deliciously effective fliperoo – an engrossing, beautifully involving disc to file somewhere between steve reich, colin Stetson, Brian eno, emeralds, and mulatu astatki.
to create something so striking is no mean feat when working in the shadows of those greats, but Brian Allen Simon has managed to gift the world a jazz album, an electronic album, an ambient album, a classical album, and an agnostic spiritual in one prismatic gesture. it’s a deft manipulation of space, time, tension, and mood, amounting to a feeling of profound beauty. “The soprano saxophone that opens Anenon's new disc, ‘Tongue’, is not the only reason to check out Brian Allen Simon's fourth LP… a beautifully composed and performed disc.” 8/10 – exclaim!
