Sugaroo! Presents: ANTI-

Andie Projects

The 2013 Grammy award nominees were just announced and Los Angeles indie label Anti- made quite the showing with several well-deserved nominations, which means that it’s the perfect time to shine a light on some of the label’s current releases: 

NekoCase_TheWorseThingsGetNeko Case: The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You

Sultry folk noir tales from one of the indie world’s sharpest of tongues and torchiest of torchbearers…nominated for 2013 Best Alternative Music Album Grammy!

MavisStaples_OneTrueVine

Gospel’s reigning queen digs deep in her soul while mixing in some sass & funk…nominated for 2013 Best Americana Album Grammy!

 

MilkCartonKids_TheAshAndClayThe Milk Carton Kids: The Ash & Clay

Modern folk duo that blend Simon & Garfunkel-esque harmonies with bittersweet, heartbreaking tales recalling the darker side of Americana…nominated for 2013 Best Folk Album Grammy!

 

DrDog_BRoomDr. Dog: B-Room

A rollicking set of hazy classic rock sounds mixed with indie rock sensibility and harmony-laden cool folkie vibes.

 

ManMan_OnOniPondMan Man: On Oni Pond

Quirky, catchy, multi-instrumental, fantastical, experimental indie rock with heavy pop influences and a flair for the avant-garde.

 

TheMelodic_EffraParade-001The Melodic: Effra Parade

Harmony-laden, sweetly-plucked English folk studded with a wordly afrobeat sound and vibes both moody and uplifting.

 

SonLittleSon Little: Cross My Heart (Single)
