Album review: 'Purple, Green, and Yellow' 

Anamon

'Purple, Green, and Yellow'

Self-released

anamon.bandcamp/com

On its recent platter-that-matters, "Purple, Green, and Yellow," Rochester band Anamon invites the listener into the ether and reverb. The atmosphere envelops the dismissive, yet sincere vocals of frontwoman Ana Emily Monaco. The weaponry wielded wonderfully and wildly within is that of a classic rock 'n' roll quartet. Yet there's a pervading darkness that is both deeply soothing and superficially painful, like scratching a mosquito bite. And that feels good, doesn't it?

On "Purple, Green, and Yellow," the band is guitar-driven and fairly cohesive throughout, even when it takes detours - like the countrified "Outsider," with its bold Kinks quote, or the saxophone freak-out on "In 3." Anamon sits back and lets the music wind you up. Your ears have nowhere to hide. It makes cool seem so easy, and frankly that's the definition of the word.
