Say Goodnight
June 2008 Radio Star


Love in Texas

Annabella have a beautifully simple, honest and true approach to making ambient indie pop. The result is an unquestionably lovely collection of tracks that are dreamy and pretty: like a blend of Venus Hum, Sarah McLaughlin, Mazzy Star and The Sundays.

Annabella are from Georgetown, TX . The core of Annabella is a wife and husband team -- Terri ( vocals , piano, Rhodes, flute ) and Tim (drums, guitar, samples)Dittmar. They are joined by Anderson Bracht (guitar, bass, backing vocals), Joshua Zarbo (bass) and Meason Wiley/ Dead Waiter (landscapes, loops, backing vocals).

The couple started writing songs together in the late 1990’s and put out their first album, Annabelle, in 2002. Songs of Goodbye was completed in late 2005 and was recorded in Annabelle’s home studio, las olas recordings. Their latest release, Say Goodnight, and other music is available at all the usual places.
