Connection to Anika

Beak is the buzzy, droney, industrial, experimental side project of Portishead's producer/multi-instrumentalist Geoff Barrow. He formed the group in 2009 with bassist Billy Fuller of Fuzz Against Junk and Matt Williams of Team Brick. (When Beak backs singer Anika, live, Andy Suitor fills in for Barrow on drums.) Unlike Portishead, known for taking forever to make an album, Beak has given itself a strict directive to complete projects in a timely manner (so far the band has released a self-titled full-length, a 12-inch and produced Anika). The secret? Record in one room with no overdubs or repairs. Just create the genius and burn it to disc. Done. — A.M.
