With the release of their debut album Bloom the band found praise from the likes of Henry Rollins with rotation on his program (KCRW 89.9 FM Los Angeles) stating that they were a “must see emerging act!” Shortly after recording The Anti-Job enlisted avant-jazz percussionist Lee Harcourt as a permanent member to join them on tour as well as contribute to future recordings. With the subsequent release of their EP You're Not Real (produced & engineered by Brandon Eggeleston [Mountain Goats, Swans, Tune-yards]) LA Record likened the dream-like quality of their sound-scapes to the hanging gardens of Babylon by declaring them both “A lovely space to walk around in.” Music Connection commented on their unique style of genre-bending saying their music “pushes the envelope with its experimental tunes that blur the lines between psychedelic, noise rock, alternative and punk.”
Pioneering a hybrid genre coined as “surrealist rock” The Anti-Job have shared the stage with a myriad of noise makers, touring with Deerhoof and Cy Dune (Seth Olinsky of Akron Family) as well as playing festivals and shows with Of Montreal, FIDLAR, Elizabeth and the Catapult, Diane Coffee and Kayo Dot.
