Editorial Reviews

Anny Celsi's new CD, produced by Nelson Bragg (of The Brian Wilson Band), features contributions from 60's icon Evie Sands, members of Brian Wilson's Band and LA's rich pop/roots community. Continuing in the pop-noir vein of Little Black Dress, Tangle-Free World retains Anny's ''beatnik cool'' feel while expanding her musical landscape, with influences ranging from Lee Hazlewood to The Byrds to Burt Bacharach.

By M. Allen Greenbaum HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on April 23, 2010
Format: MP3 Music
Annie Celsi returns fun to the pop/rock scene with these delicious retro pop/rock tunes. (with touches of roots/country, gospel, and even R and B). Yes, she knows how to write snappy, instrumental and lyrical hooks, but this music is so much deeper than that description implies. The band takes a large swath from the last 50 years of music, and weaves it into a unique, immensely enjoyable sound.

A large part of my happy addiction relates to her mastery of when to let the instruments lay back and when to let them loose. The instrumentation is incredible, a masterful blend of guitars (pedal steel guitar, 12-string, slide), and strings (Amy Ferris on viola, violin, and cello) keyboards, percussion, and backing vocals that blow you away. Yet, for all the firepower at her command, Celsi keeps her message and her sound direct and uncluttered.

The title track is worth the price of the CD alone, a song that zips along 60's pop routes but with fresh sonic detours, including a daring but effective use of the sitar. The band is tight and talented. Just a few highlights include Nelson Bragg and Probyn Gregory's guitars on "Own Sweet Time," Bragg's instrumental tour de force (including a classic jangly-guitar opening) on the rocking, hit-ready "Piece of Heaven, the driving guitars on "Thanksgiving in Hollywood" (Robbie Rist, Steve Refling, Nelson Bragg), and the Van Morrison strains of "Now You Can Hurt Me."

Celsi's singing is strong, versatile, and compelling. She can either hit you straight on or seduce you with velvety/smoky inflections. Somehow, her sound recalls the best of the British pop/rock singers, which is quite a feat when you don't have an accent. Ms.

I was blown away by this CD from the very first listen. "Tangle-Free World" is a collaboration between Anny Celsi, and Nelson Bragg of the Brian Wilson band (who also produced and arranged the album). It is, in fact, one of the rare albums that I felt compelled to replay instantly! "Tangle-Free World" is gorgeous, melodic, musically interesting and totally enjoyable. There is absolutely not one dud track on the album, and I would go as far as saying that virtually every song could be a single. The first track "Tangle Free World" is delightful - kind of like Mamas and Papas meet "Marakesh Express" on "Pleasant Valley Sunday"! There are some lovely touches of sitar and a trumpet arrangement that would be at home on "The Notorious Byrd Brothers".

All that said, Anny Celsi is an excellent songwriter with a unique and affecting voice. Everything sounds so good here, that I hesitate to pick favourite tracks, but Thanksgiving in Hollywood", "First Love Freezes", "The Night She Learned to Drive" and "Own Sweet Time" are the songs that particularly stood out on my first listens. "Dream Boy" rapidly became another personal favourite. "Now You Can Hurt Me" has the soulful sound that you might hear on one of Van Morrison's best albums. As well as featuring Nelson on drums and percussion, it also features other members of the multi-talented Brian Wilson band (as do some of the other tracks here). "Own Sweet Time" features Probyn Gregory on bass, trumpet and slide guitar, and a string arrangement by Paul Von Mertens. The guitar playing at the end sounds uncannily like George Harrison's on "Cloud Nine".

Leonine creativity shines throughout the album, giving several songs a jingly-jangly Byrdsy sound that could also be likened to Suzanne Vega's "Luka" or some of the Pretenders' music.

The rewards for listening to this roots-pop are profound. With a master's touch, Nelson Bragg, member of the Wondermints collective and great artist in his own right, has produced engaging, disparate tracks from an authentic American star, Anny Celsi. This review is based on four tracks, the utterly winning, hit-worthy "Sally;" the propulsive Bangles-update of "Tangle-Free World"; the short-story epic of "The Night She Learned to Drive; and the Bragg-Celsi pop duo of "Some Velvet Morning." Like a tour through America's recent past, these tracks are where independent American pop beats all contenders, makes you proud to know such underground talent.
