Classic Ballroom Dances
LP 
Price: $17.79

Product Notes

Vinyl LP pressing. 2015 album by the singer/songwriter. Anar Badalov is New Dog, but Classic Ballroom Dances is no trick - this intimate and enthralling album is the next installment in the career of this promising young songwriter. Born in Baku, Azerbaijan in the ‘80s, Anar's family immigrated to Baltimore, MD during the breakup of the Soviet Union. Anar grew up in Baltimore and was in two notable bands, Metal Hearts and Travels, between 2004 and 2014. With the dissolution of Travels, Anar began working on his own for the first time. Classic Ballroom Dances, like the first New Dog album Lost Weekend, was recorded alone in his apartment. The title was inspired by the poem of the same name by Yugoslavian poet Charles Simic. Simic has said that list poems like Classic Ballroom Dances are "the poetic equivalent of quilt-making." Long before Anar read this poem or heard of the poet, this was the way he approached songwriting. "I'd like to think that at least a handful of songs on this album capture something like what Simic is talking about," he says. Simic is one of Anar's biggest influences. Others include Lee Hazlewood, Frank O'Hara, Mark Linkous, John Berryman, Raymond Carver, Anton Chekhov, Townes Van Zandt and guitarist Mick Turner.
