Anvil Salute

Anvil Salute - Black Bear Rug US

"Black Bear Rug" by Anvil Salute We’re pleased to welcome Norman, OK’s Anvil Salute back to Deep Water, as their previous release for the label – 2007’s This Is the Voice of Doom Calling – has long been an in-house favorite. Several years in the (slo-mo) making, Black Bear Rug marks the group’s first foray into full-length multi-track recording, with a rich sound that weaves mandolin, accordion, banjo, ektara, esraj and flute into the drifting blend of acoustic & electric guitars, upright bass, and drums, across settings both spontaneous and composed. Compared with the rooster’s crow of its predecessor, Black Bear Rug finds Anvil Salute in a mostly pensive frame of mind, manifesting a late-night comedown atmosphere suspended somewhere between Great Plains and opium den, optimized for listener immersion possibilities. Seven tracks, 47 minutes.

Anvil Salute - this is the voice of doom calling

"this is the voice of doom calling" by Anvil Salute Anyone who read our Deep Water interview with Norman, OK's Anvil Salute knows what big fans we are of the group. And lucky for us, they've returned to the Acres to grace us with their ironically titled fourth full-length disc, a full hour of gloriously unwinding instrumental great plains folk rock. Both their most focused and most varied work to date, it takes in everything from angular modal epics to sweetly melodic miniatures to ethnic-infused psychedelic drones, all seemingly rendered live via lovely you-are-there room-fi acoustics. Heed that rooster's crow. . . .

Anvil Salute and Stone Breath reviewed by Mr. Atavist

Some good words from Mr. Atavist:

"Black Bear Rug exists in that time when day is giving into evening and night is turning into morning. In Anvil Salute’s hands those two times meet and become virtually indistinguishable"

and

"The first live recording from the long-running Stone BreathThe Snow-White Ghost-White Stag, is both a great live, and intimate, document and a thoroughly rich one."

Anvil Salute and Stone Breath reviewed @ the Terrascope Online

Some lovely reviews from the Terrascope Online.

On Black Bear Rug:

"I have always loved the music of Anvil Salute, their free flowing psychedelic ramblings speak of open spaces, cool forest and flashes of enlightenment, the playing always sympathetic and filled with passion. On their latest collection however, even long term fans will be blown away by their brilliance, seven songs that shine out with joy creating their strongest album to date."

On The Snow-White Ghost-White Stag:

"Over 10 tracks, Carin Wagner, Brooke Elizabeth, Don Belch, and Timothy Renner himself prove that they are more than capable musicians, playing together as one unit allowing the strengths of the songs to shine through [...] Fans of the band will not be disappointed, those of you who are curious should just dive in."

Plus a kind word for the label:

"So, another brace of aural excellence from Deep Water, long may it continue." We'll do our best.
