Aan / Genders

Recommended by Ryan J. Prado

Aan has reshaped several times since forming in 2008. On their 2014 debut, Amor Ad Nauseum, the Portland art-pop band—led by the nebulous songwriting of Bud Wilson—deconstructed gloomy rock ’n’ roll schematics for vaster sonic terrain. The group’s 2016 follow-up, Dada Distractions, yielded even further experimentation, multi-instrumentation, and even some unabashed pummelers, like “Hollywood Buyout.” Recently, Aan’s been woodshedding a new LP, Losing My Shadow, with yet another updated lineup and still more exploratory songcraft in tow. The lushness of the fresh five-piece is immediately striking on “Falling”—a kind of meditative lullaby replete with vivid synth and Wilson’s fragile tenor. Another unreleased track, “Mistakes,” finds the band fully utilizing their souped-up aural grab bag, grinding out a sultry anti-pop banger. The new record is expected to be out sometime in 2018, but Aan will perform some new songs as they co-headline this show with Genders.
