Fans of the Mars Volta and At the Drive-In have yet another project to look forward to from multi-tasking lead singer Cedric Bixler Zavala. Teaming with Christian Eric Beaulieu (of Triclops! and Liquid Indian), Bixler Zavala’s Anywhere is a group that departs from expected Mars Volta/ATDI aesthetics (though there’s definitely a little bit of guitar noodling in here, it’s nothing like a Volta record). On “Dead Golden West,” the duo enlists singer Rachael Fannan (of Sleepy Sun) to craft a crossroads between ethereal indie and blues, its determined rhythm nicely offset be Fannan’s floaty, reverberant vocals–an apt performance and title for something that would fit very well in a revivalist Western.
