Anubian Lights are an electronic/space rock outfit from L.A. masterminded by Tommy Greñas and Len del Rio. Continuously exploring space rock's possibilities, they mix sci-fi kitsch with acid-rock, spaced-out electronic and world-music, building their songs layer by layer and then filling their hooky loops with subtle details. With the use of sampling, synths, drum machines and deep pulsating bass, they churn out some playful and infectious foot-tapping, hip-shaking numbers, creating hypnotic landscapes à la Can and Kraftwerk. Their debut album, "The Eternal Sky" (1995), is an ambitious blend of space trance and slick Middle Eastern percussion with soaring synths, electric violin, electric guitar and robotic, bizarre chants.
