    Seven years and six releases into the existence of the band, very little has stayed the same. On top of the departure and introduction of new members into the collaboration, the 2006 breakout release of the group's first nationally distributed record, Floating World, offered the group a broad spectrum of opportunities ranging from extensive US tours and appearances at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and Coachella to shows with Joanna Newsom, Why?, Broken Social Scene, Sufjan Stevens, and Wolf Parade. With a new LP slated for release in 2008, the band continues to approach new musical territory with a sense of wonder and confusion.

    "Anathallo's songs are intricate daydreams, at once self-effacing and confident enough to allow some fragility [,] I can't help being fond of a band that calls a song "Entropy," explains that it's based on Thomas Pynchon's novel "The Crying of Lot 49," sets out a joyful, odd-meter guitar riff that gives way to a delicate, almost whispered chorus and then, midway through the song, has band and audience members blowing up balloons to release them on cue." – Jon Pareles, New York Times

    Hailing from the small town of Mt. Pleasant, MI, home of Central Michigan University, Anathallo continues the long, proud tradition of bands that start in little college towns in the middle of nowhere, like Lawrence, Kansas or Athens, Georgia: Anathallo is a quirky, indie band with the sort of unique sound that comes from a place where it's easy to ignore outside influences. In fact, the closest point of comparison to Anathallo's experimental take on folk-rock comes from the loose collective of bands based in Athens that grew out of the Olivia Tremor Control and Neutral Milk Hotel: describing their sound as "a marching band gone wild," the band blends trippy neo-psychedelic guitar pop with a fully integrated horn section, layers of keyboards, and masses of hand percussion. –Stewart Mason, All Music
