Anachronist is the brainchild of Vermont singer, songwriter, and guitarist Brian Clark. They’ve been compared to The Replacements, Yo La Tengo, Sonic Youth, Low, and Galaxie 500. The band comprises Clark (guitar/vocals), Bill Barbot (guitar/vocals), Phil Carr (drums), Mike Donofrio (bass), and Angela Paladino (vocals/percussion). Anachronist has shared the stage with Anders Parker & Cloud Badge, Tim Foljahn, Wussy, Chris Brokaw, Paper Castles, and many others, and the band has played the Waking Windows Festival twice. Since 2012, Anachronist has recorded four albums. The band’s most recent album is Stay Late, released in early 2020 and pressed on vinyl at Burlington Record Plant. Read Jordan Adams’ review in Seven Days here. A highlight: “Stay Late is full of authentic, genuine songs created by a gifted group of friends.” This group of good friends has many new songs in the works and looks forward to getting back into the studio in 2023.
