Here comes another gem from L.A.'s infamous Smell scene. ANAVAN evolved amidst bands like HEALTH, Mika Miko, and Abe Vigoda, and the group is currently two full-lengths in, with its sophomore album, Cover Story, ready to drop in November. Music-wise, the trio of Bret Berg, Aaron Buckley, and Molly Williams paid special attention to the many capabilities of the synthesizer, and the album sees the band pushing hard, dancefloor-ready tracks, usually of the electro variety. Check "BOOM" for further proof of this. Photo by John Shardt.
