Unapologetically ambitious, complex, staggeringly powerful music, simultaneously haunting and moving. A collaborator of Jandek and Michael Rother, amongst others, Anika spins a surreal tale of longing and fate, with a quasi-religious delivery in deadpan counterpoint to its account of lust and fury, domination and submission. Shackleton's vivid, detailed sound-world is an inimitable blend of his own devotional and trance styles -- lingeringly melodic, sometimes atonal, with odd, overlain time signatures, and a general, imperious disregard for conventional song-making.
