Body Pill is Anthony Naples' debut full-length for Kieran Hebden's (Four Tet) Text Records. As Anthony tells it, the title comes from a mangled English translation that caught his eye in a Japanese vending machine. "When I ran the title past Kieran, and he said it just sounded like a lost rave classic, but I thought in the end it makes sense. The LP is a small dose of synthetic noises and rhythms." Naples says. Stylistically, the album draws inspiration from the city that gave Anthony his start: New York. "I wanted to make a streetwise record that was also solid and simple, like a brick or those weird fluorescent light tubes in the subway. They give off this weird hum that you hear only when you're alone in the station between trains late at night. I wanted to make a record that evoked that experience." Body Pill is a surprising album for Anthony, his most understated and mature release to date. Body Pill opens with a wall of ambient noise on "Ris," only to be overtaken by a modest synth groove. Ambient noise washes over and eventuallyovertakes tracks like "Way Stone" and "Pale" later on in the record. But that's not to say there aren't echoes of Naples' work for Mister Saturday Night lurking throughout the record. "Abrazo" feels like the natural companion to Anthony's earlier singles, with elegant strings mingling with a deconstructed house-inspired beat. "Used to Be" is arguably Anthony's largest beat to date whose rolling hi-hats counterbalance the track's stabbing synths. The album's closer "Miles" abruptly morphs from a lo-fi house anthem into a surprisingly minimal synth soundscape, a microcosm of the record as a whole.
