At the center of An Angle is youthful Sacramento songwriter Kris Anaya. He tapped various pals in area bands to record And Take It With a Grain of Salt, the project's debut, which he released on his own imprint in 2002. It proved to be a rambling indie pop sensation, incorporating comfy folk and emo touches and suggesting a little of everyone from Bright Eyes to the Pogues. The album was picked up by Drive-Thru, which offered its re-release in November 2004. Next was a tour with Drive-Thru act Steel Train, and then Angle returned to the studio to record more music. We Can Breathe Under Alcohol (Drive-Thru) appeared in May 2005. It featured a similarly revolving cast of musicians and instruments, and the same intuitive pop sense. An Angle launched a spring and summer tour in support. The band's third release, The Truth Is That You Are Alive, emerged two years later. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi
