Geoff Barrow collabs with Anika

Blake Gillespie

Beth Gibbons is socially inept. This leaves Geoff Barrow no choice but to outsource his gift for cutting edge production and we couldn't be any happier with the result.

Beak> was his first departure and it was rad as shit. But Geoff loves him some female vocals, so he was aching to get a new dame in his life to sing over his kraut-dub production – and yes, I just coined “kraut-dub”. Luckily he met political journalist Anika. In typical Beak> fashion the group cut a nine-song record, no over-dubs, in 12 days.

Stones Throw is handling the US release and the label leaked “Yang Yang” today. It's euro-trashy, like some eight foot viking-type broad testing the waters of hip hop. It's politically transparent, but not in some annoying M.I.A. sorta way. Simply put, it's fuggin' awesome.

Anika's self-titled record is out December 7 on Stones Throw.

Anika, “Yang Yang”
