Featured Artist: Anathallo

It's one of those underground-to-mainstream stories so commonly (but not often enough) found in the indie music world. Anathallo began in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan with Matt Joynt at the helm in 2000. Six years passed, with many EPs and line-up changes passing, before the group's debut full-length Floating World – a concept album based on a Japanese fairy tale – was released. In the nick of time, while the group was taking residence in a Chicago church, the group landed a line-up slot at Coachella for 2007. The rest is history (what a cliche). Anathallo (which means "blooming again" in Greek) released their second LP Canopy Glow in late 2008.
