Comment: undoubtedly this shit rocks your socks off. In fact, Hanging Freud has always rocked off, of course, by doing it at their own disposal. For sure, it is an example of rock music though an example of rock music of what rock music should be ideally. However, there it is, drawing on hefty drones and Paula Borges` seductive singing. I can remember for the London/Brazilian duo of Paula Borges/Jonathan Perez`s first album Sunken (under the Brazilian imprint Sinewave) which was something special and still persistent in my memories. I have traced their path thereafter and without any disappointments so far. The same could be said about Anomalies either. I guess the 4-track issue can be considered the most minimal record in the duo`s discography. As I already said before the hefty cathedral-based drones implicate apocalyptic associations in this mirthless world like a counterpoint in Bram Stoker`s Dracula where the Count yarned with diabolic pungency about his ongoing travel and beginning life in London. Actually this short-running issue needs no more words to be described but instead of it inducing addiction to repeat it again and again. And again. Paula Borges` flickering vocal used to tower atop the drones and then again the elements will be changed with regard to placement like a couple of curvy lines within the histogram used to meander against one another. Leave is the organic interlude about employing concrete sounds to alleviate the impending obliteration. By kindred souls you can find out some similarities to the likes of Radiohead, and Portishead. Indeed, the heads to be hanged.
