Anna Burch: Party tape

Anna Burch (Failed Flowers, Frontier Ruckus) released a split tape with Stef Chura last year, and she’s due to release her proper debut album on Polyvinyl next year, but this brief tape appeared this year. Crowd sounds are dubbed into the background, making it seem like a performance at a party or an open mic night, but the crowd obviously isn’t responding to the music or interacting with it in any way, so there’s a sort of awkward disconnect, and the lyrics seem related to this feeling. Super casual sounding, especially when Anna admits between songs that she messed up certain parts, but the songs themselves are really powerful. If this was an actual live recording, there’s no way the audience would be treating the music as background noise. Available directly from Life Like, now in its second pressing.
