Album Notes
The Boston-based trio, Anushka Pop was formed at the close of 2000. The band came together out of a mutual admiration for the power pop acts of the 70s and 80s, bands like the Attractions, the Jam, the Cars, and the Paul Collins Beat. Since their first club date, the boys have continued to take to the stage with pop melodicism, a few sharp hooks and the pursuit of the perfect 3-minute single.

Akathena continues in the vein of Anushka Pop's 2003 eponymous debut e.p. The band's tightly-crafted arrangements and rapturous performances are well represented here, this time in a suite of 7 songs about love, war, remembrance, rebirth, and self-conciousness...and girls.

The e.p. was recorded, mixed and mastered by Mike Quinn at the Moontower Studio in Cambridge, MA.

Excellent power pop with a dash of roots rock
I was having trouble describing how this EP fuses Brit invasion, American power pop (early Cheap Trick comes to mind) and a dash of rootsiness to such swell and cohesive effect until my wunnerful girlfriend came to my rescue. "They sound like The Cavedogs," she said. And so they do.
