(Fensepost) “A really magical release” (Drunken Werewolf Magazine) ”Beautiful stuff” (Wears the Trousers Magazine) "I think this is the start of something really good." (What's Wrong With the Mainstream) "Anja McCloskey continues to create a wonderfully understated and fluid sound that is uniquely her own." (Unplug the Jukebox) "A folk-drone of almost hymnal solemnity and no little beauty." (Terrascope) Ever since my grandpa started playing his accordion to me as a little child I have wanted to play it too. I just love the deep and full sounds and the little quirky noises the accordion makes and I don't know any other instrument that can be so versatile and expressive. I started playing when I was 5 and haven't stopped since. I have played in accordeon orchestras (Akkordeonorchester Elmshorn), played in bands (Haunted Stereo, The Irrepressibles), have worked with solo artists (Katy Carr, Jake Flowers, Helen McCookerybook, Claudio Gerard, Ana Silvera), and write and perform my own pieces as I please. I am also very much into writing and contribute to various magazines (Wears the Trousers, Ether Magazine).

I hope you like the music :-) 'Baroque anti-folk' [common sense] Anja's a multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and one-sixth of the folk-rock Juggernaut that is Haunted Stereo. We could use words like 'tender'. 'intimate', 'melancholic' and 'sweeping' to describe her music, but that would be a cop-out and a bit lame, so we'd have to fall back on simply urging you to go (maybe dangling HS's impending 'star stutus' in front of you as a veiled threat of uncoolness) or find some ker-A-zee postmodern web 2.o way so have our cake and eat it. Oh, shit.
