Portland ensemble Anne has their debut full-length Dream Punx coming out later this month on Baltimore's A389 Recordings label, and it's a mix of familiar tracks from the band's self-released EPs and a bunch of new recordings for good measure. Anne boasts a dense, cavernous sound that plunders heavily from the shoegazer sounds of yore that are everywhere these days, but the band does so with conviction. The vocals are buried beneath huge synths and guitars, emphasizing mood over content. And there's a woozy, gauzy edge to what initially seem like black-hearted sulks, a romanticism that suits the band well. With tonight's show, Anne wraps up a short West Coast tour just in time for the record's release, which should see them reaching more ears than ever before. NED LANNAMANN
