Annuals, 'Be He Me' (Ace Fu)

Be He Me
Critical Mass
Label: Ace Fu

by Julia Simon

The debut album by this Raleigh, North Carolina collective sprawls with confidence, combining sunny layers of strings, classical piano, stomp-rock riffs, entrancing space noises, and triumphant shouts. Twenty-year-old frontman Adam Baker writes melodically intricate and ecstatically dissonant songs that recall Arcade Fire and Broken Social Scene, but Annuals have their own utterly exotic aura.
