Anomie Belle celebrates the release of her new Machine E.P. tomorrow at the Tractor Tavern. Here's what I had to say about it in last week's issue of Reverb Monthly:
On trip-hop maven Anomie Belle's new EP (her fifth release), all is not right with the world. The bleak portrait of America presented in the title track is a rallying cry for the 99 percent, and features a verse from socially conscious MC Mr. Lif.
The show also marks the debut of a new piece composed specifically by Ms. Belle for her string quartet, commissioned by Seattle's Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs and 4Culture. Local folk-rockers Cataldo and New Orleans jazz trumpet player Michael Naveda open. And best of all, it's free! Festivities start at 8 p.m. Check out the video for the EP's title track after the jump.
