Stream: Anonymous Choir Sings Neil Young’s After The Gold Rush
Anonymous Choir, the all female choir fronted by Nona Invie of Dark Dark Dark, have followed up their outstanding Leonard Cohen covers tape with a smokey, lo-fi take on Neil Young’s After the Gold Rush. As expected, it is incredibly powerful in their usual rustic, minimalist way. Nona still provides lead vocals and piano, but in a slight change from previous incarnations, the choir is backed by guitar, bass and drums at points of the release. It is great hearing both the songs you would expect them to cover, like “Only Love Can Break Your Heart,” alongside their more sparse arrangements of tracks that originally had more teeth, like “Southern Man.” This LP is another gorgeous, heart-wrenching release from this underrated Minneapolis collective.
