Anthony Green stood out immediately in sound and sensibility, first as the frontman of Saosin and later of Circa Survive. His two bands rose from a certain mid-'00s post-hardcore scene that welcomed Green but in which he was essentially still a misfit. With an unabashed love for proggy, experimental musical tinkering and a high, adenoidal wail, Green never bothered with the scene's requisite loud-soft, loud-soft dynamics. As a solo act, unsurprisingly, Green has gotten progressively weirder and completely unconstrained by simple genre categories. For proof, the cast list of his latest album, Beautiful Things, released on January 17, includes the Deftones' Chino Moreno alongside Norwegian indie chanteuse Ida Maria.
