FRIENDS OF FRIENDS

Anenon’s "Tongue" is a beautiful album. The fourth LP from the musician and composer born Brian Allen Simon was created in just under a month far away from his native Los Angeles near the small town of Palaia in Italy’s Tuscany region—home to some of the history’s finest creators from Dante to the Florentine Renaissance painters, Puccini to Andrea Bocelli. It’s reminiscent of Brian Eno trying to produce an ambient record for Fela Kuti or Mulatu Astatke. Hints of John Cage and Steve Reich suffuse the former UCLA music history student’s deft manipulation of space, time, tension, and mood. It’s a beauty that’s both plaintive and prismatic. A jazz album, an electronic album, an ambient album, a classical album, an agnostic spiritual. It’s "Tongue" - a self-contained universe, a place where emotional and intellectual articulation coalesce and are physically let go into the world through sound and human communication. A masterwork of ineffable and profound beauty.

For five years, Friends of Friends has been at the forefront of Los Angeles' independent music culture, propagating a rich catalogue of innovative releases from across the electronic music spectrum. This year, FoF is celebrating its fifth anniversary with a massive compilation featuring classic songs from the likes of Shlohmo, Salva, LOL Boys and Tomas Barfod alongside B-sides, rarities, remixes and brand new tracks from the extended Friends of Friends family. Disparate sounds from Rome Fortune, Shigeto, Nicolas Jaar and many others find a home on 5oFoF: 'Five Years of Friends of Friends', drawing together the label's eclectic past with its exciting, genre-melding future.
