Anika – Yang Yang (Stones Throw Records)

Anika is the latest signing to the pioneering LA label Stones Throw, also home to Madlib, Mayer Hawthorne, Dam-Funk and numerous other musical luminaries.

A political journalist, moving between Bristol and Berlin, Anika met Geoff Barrow (of Portishead, and Beak>) earlier this year and the two soon realised a shared love of punk, dub, and 60s girl groups. Twelves days in a recording studio later and Anika, the self-titled debut, was complete.

Yang Yang is the incendiary first cut to be released from the album, due for physical release in December and digital release in November.
