iTunes Review

Continuing where her acclaimed 2010 self-titled debut album left off, the EP Anika includes more collaborations between the Berlin-to-Bristol singer and Portishead's Geoff Barrow and Beak. The members of Beak have served as Anika's backing group for the past several years. Together they make a deliberately android-ish art-dance-pop-rock that recalls Nico's work in the mid-'80s with The Faction, but it's far more stripped down and accessible. The covers are well-chosen and picked for their various emotions, which Anika delivers in the same dispassionate monotone. A version of The Kinks' "I Go to Sleep" (perhaps best known in its cover by The Pretenders) is sparse and flat. The Crystals' "He Hit Me (And It Felt Like a Kiss)" has its horrible truth punched to the front for one more ironic go-round. Shocking Blue's "Love Buzz" is turned into a hypnotic prayer. Two dub mixes by Bristol producer Ratman trick out the previous singles "No One's There" and Yoko Ono's "Yang Yang."
