Portland band Aan have an album! It took a while, for several good reasons. The tangled, off-kilter rock they produce was well worth the wait.

I can't stop mistyping Action Bronson as "Archie Bronson," due to the inactive English band Archie Bronson Outfit that I love so dearly. In reality, comic rapper Action Bronson has virtually nothing in common with those guys, apart from some letters (and possibly a love for the '80s solo work of Genesis lead singers, because who doesn't love that?).
