Anthna, Tones EP

Today is such a perfect day for our label and it’s mostly because we’re more than glad to present to you one of Mexico’s finest laptronica documents ever to be recorded in the history of (glichy) electronic (rock) music. Does that sound mad to you? Well, it might probably be, because it’s true.

Tones EP was released under a very limited edition through Soundsister in early 2005, this EP was so goddamn good, somehow ended up in every Mexican IDM freak, future folk pirate and weirdo post-rocker dudes’ iPod. One of those iPods just happened to be the right one, and then the next thing you know, you got Anthna onstage giving an epic massive gig at MUTEK MX’s third edition. Hell, we’ve seen Mogwai and Fennesz live for a few times, and yet, Anthna that day, for some reason managed to whoop their ass. No rubbish, mates.

Here you will find five songs that shall always remain in our thoughts like a shocking story of love, hope and pain, mostly because it was narrated to us in such a great, raw, cold, loud, fickle and strongly distorted approach. We hope you like it as much as we do.
