Ana Never from Serbia celebrates their 12th anniversary & 10th anniversary of their first live show this year. They have a gift for their friends and fans who love them and listen to their gorgeous instrumentals.
This is a digital only release and free, still you can reward it on Bandcamp.
They will be releasing a new studio album this year. This live recording comes before the upcoming storm.
Ten years after their first concert, they decided to reward their listeners. The recording took place in Mini Club in their home town Subotica. It comes today as it is; a very raw recording, without mixing and mastering.
Nevertheless, it will be hugely appreciated by both band’s and label’s fans, as it is still Ana Never.
Through the decade Ana Never emerged as one of the most respectful bands of post-rock related music in the Balkan region. The band have played all around the south east and central Europe, shared stage with Jeniferever, Kayo Dot, Heirs and many many others. They have been hosting and promoting Nadja, Dorena, Khuda, Sun Glitters, Port-royal, Shaking Sensations, God is an Astronout and dozens of other bands and artists for their live shows in Serbia.
Their latest studio album “Small Years” was appreciated by both music lovers and critics and the album was chosen as one of the “best post-rock” or “best instrumental rock” albums of 2012.
The album also appeared in printed books. In Stinkweeds “Best of 2012” Book, Jesse Srogoncik says: “Formulaic though it may be, instrumental post-rock still has the ability to create moments of transcendental bliss at the proper volume. This sophomore effort from Ana Never stands as one of the finest post-rock recordings of this or any other year. Truly magnificent: the elongated, creeping crescendo of Godspeed You Black Emporer, the melancholy of Japan’s Mono, and Mogwai’s gale force, hammer of the gods. There is an undeniable stasis befitting their Serbian origins; like Thomas Koner or Stars Of The Lid, a tectonic shift that seems capable of bending time. You’ll want your clock set to Daylight Savings Time and a stereo that goes to eleven.”
Ana Never members said their upcoming studio album is coming soon. This live recording from 2004 is a good gift for the band fans (including all Fluttery Records family) who are impatiently waiting for the record.
