One of Stones Throw's newest artists, the UK-based Anika, has been making waves recently since releasing her Geoff Barrow-produced self-titled debut LP last December (which you can read a bit about in our Iconic Soundfeature with Portishead/Beak>'s Barrow) but has yet to make an appearance state-side, until now. News has come down our way that Anika will be making a handful of DJ appearances with dates in New York and LA throughout the month of February, spinning alongside the likes of Peanut Butter Wolf, Cubic Zirconia, Machinedrum, and Veronica Vasicka (who's responsible for curating Stones Throw's excellent Minimal Wave Tapes). We've also found out that Anika has plans to bring her full band (featuring members of Beak>) to the US later this spring, but no dates have come our way yet. Below, you can check out Anika's planned DJ sets and watch a hectic video of her band's rehearsal before a show in Paris.
