Anenon’s Tongue is a beautiful album. That’s an adjective whose meaning has
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.
