Album Review

Anvil Salute – “A Discrete History of Bone” – [Digitalis Industries]

Numa   3/9/2006   A Library, CD

Anvil Salute from Norman, Oklahoma, is a best described by themselves as semi-improvised droning fractured folk. This is their first full release on the foxglove series from Brad Rose and Digitalis Industries. This album was recorded in April of 2005 at Mainsite Contemporary Art in Norman, Oklahoma. Percussion is a strong suit with Anvil Salute, their pieces make extensive use of many different percussion instruments from sleigh bells to caba’as. No semblance of lyrics to be found here, Anvil Salute stands on their musical merits alone. Their music evokes a feelings from relaxing acoustic pieces to tribal dances to free jazz with flute instead of a sax. I know what you are thinking, how can all this work together? Anvil Salute makes it almost seamless between tracks. — Numa
