The band's debut album "Songs from Far Away" gained recognition among music critics as well as within the film industry. Music from the first album was included in feature films "Big Girls Don't Cry" (Columbia/Tri-Star with soundtrack released on Virgin Records), and "Dopamine," an award-winning film at the Sundance Film Festival. More recently, Anagram's music was in a national PBS television series that will air on BBC this winter. The series is called "Design E2" and is narrated by Brad Pitt. NPR's 'This American Life' has featured some of their tracks, and music from their new album is already in the upcoming feature film "Speed & Angels." The trailer was just featured on Yahoo and the film will be released in 2007.
In addition to their success in films, Anagram does something rare - they craft strong albums that take the listener on a journey from start to finish, and their latest creation is no exception. Eric and Jessica enrolled their faithful friends (Bill Gould - Faith No More, Mike Morasky - Steel Pole Bathtub, Nathan Petty - Rogue Wave, Eric Schopmeyer - Slackjaw, Mike Lardas - Assemble Head, Joe Goldring - The Enablers) to enrich the orchestration and production of each song, resulting in this special offering.
Naturally, one can expect cinematic visuals to accompany Anagram's music. The video for the first single off the new album, "Shelter Street" can be seen at www.myspace.com/anagrammusic along with other videos from their first release.
