The Anomoanon, Joji – CD Review

Joji (Temporary Residence/Sonic Unyon)

Previous Anomoanon efforts were littered with Grateful Dead and Crazy Horse references and their latest release, Joji, continues along the same lines. While opener “Down And Brown,” with its Neil Young-ish croon, treads into familiar Anomoanon territory, tracks like the laid-back but jaunty “Mr. Train” channel Credence Clearwater Revival and closer “Bird Child” sees the band doing their best Steve Miller. With so many indie bands ripping off the sunny pop of the ‘60s, what’s the harm if their peers pay respects to the classic rock of the ‘70s? Snobby indie kids afraid of showing their love for “Freebird” can name drop this record and be able to sleep at night.
