Apostle of Hustle, 'National Anthem of Nowhere' (Arts & Crafts)

7
National Anthem of Nowhere
Critical Mass
Label: Arts & Crafts

by Stacey Anderson

As Gloria Estefan (and probably Nostradamus) predicted, the rhythm is gonna get us all. It's certainly got a grip on this Latin-soaked side project of Broken Social Scene guitarist Andrew Whiteman. National Anthem of Nowhere is a vivacious sampling of cultures and a swinging leap from his somber, lo-fi 2004 debut, Folkloric Feel. White-man recombines mambo, Americana, and mesmerizing BSS-style rock with infectiously rambling results -- check the flamenco strings of "¡Rafaga!" and the primal polyrhythms of "My Sword Hand's Anger." It's the sound of indie rock ready to embrace the world.
