In a ridiculous ploy to remind us of a franticly paced winter ball for every creature mythological and fantastical, Maple Leaf magicians, Ohbijou, incite you to a twirling frenzy with the organ laced, string measured, harmony rich, and piano painted “Anser”. The rising and falling/see-sawing rhythm lends an organic quality to the song, capable of causing immediate interpretive hand dancing and mental images of things both natural and conceptual.
Ohbijou – Anser by The Wounded Jukebox
“Anser” is the seventh track taken from Ohbijou’s excellent new album, Metal Meets, self-descriptively inspired by trans-continental wanderings and familial migrations.
(Metal Meets is available now from Last Gang Records)
