Anywhere II is the second full length release from musical entity Anywhere, led by Bay Area musician and songwriter Christian Eric Beaulieu. The sound began with two friends, Beaulieu and Cedric Bixler Zavala, digging into open tuning and hybrid ragas with punk energy. The project evolved into an expansive, bizarrely curated cavalcade of A-list psychedelic exhibitionists from all parts California, and a few world famous musicians playing non-famous instruments, all arranged and overseen by a mostly unknown, humble guitar playing surfer dude. The line-up of “II” finds Beaulieu and Zavala accompanied by Krist Novoselic, Mike Watt, Dale Crover, Jonathan Hischke, and many others. The beautiful album artwork comes courtesy of artist Sonny Kay.
The album debuted on Record Store Day 2018 with an exclusive blue color vinyl pressing. Check with your local independent record store(s) for copies. If you missed that one, a black vinyl edition of Anywhere II will be widely available beginning on July 27, 2018.
