Listen up fans of Maps, Grizzly Bear, Thom Yorke and Caribou. I think you’re going to like the music of Canon Blue.
I regret not going to see this artist (songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Daniel James) play live when he toured here to Toronto this month. I’m loving his dreamy folktronica; blissful melodies backed by electronic beats and loops. The full-length record (Colonies) was mixed by Chris Taylor (Grizzly Bear) is available on Rumraket Records.
Check out the first track off Colonies, Treehouse. Head to Who Needs Radio and I Guess I’m Floating to find more.
