Alias & Ehren Lillian
- Words: Rachel Shimp
- Label: Anticon
On 2003‘s Muted, Alias (nee Brendon Whitney) brought some of the thickest and certainly most blissed-out beats to Anticon‘s roster of "lap-hop" experimentalists. Brother Ehren was impressed, and offered to contribute his skills with the flute, saxophone, and clarinet to sessions for the instrumental Lillian (named after their grandmother). An extension of Muted‘s shoegazey aesthetic, the album‘s textures are warmed by Ehren‘s jazzy improvisations on tracks like "Back And Forth," where clickety-clacks and fuzzy guitars escalate to a gorgeously spazzed-out climax. "52nd & West" is likewise made light and giddy by reed instruments.
