More About

Germany's Anika is a study in paradoxes. Her lyrics convey desperation and self-erasure as she delivers them in an unflappable monotone. She's among a growing roster of weirdos on the L.A. hip-hop label Stones Throw, although her music veers closer to punk-infused electroclash. Produced by Geoff Barrow of Portishead, last year's arresting self-titled debut found the moody 24-year-old speak-singing in heavily accented English. Barrow's avant-freak instrumentals were suitably adventurous, wavering from drum machine-led folk to pop, but it was Anika who commanded center stage with her delight in black humor. "I know how the system works," she sings. "It doesn't."
