Cloudland Canyon, Mythical Beast

Cloudland Canyon / Mythical Beast (LP)

Label: Not Not Fun Records

Format: LP

Genre: Experimental

In stock


This pairing has been in the wings for a few years now by our count, but tripped things come to those who wait, so better late-as-shit than never. Cloudland Canyon have been spanning geographies (Brooklyn, Germany, Memphis) and genres (krautrock, drone, psych-pop) since at least 2002, but only recently has their technological studio-sorcery began to gather steam. Their offering here (“Harvest Hunt”) is a mechanical motorik ascent into symphonic hypnosis. Comparisons to classic Teutonic psych outfits of yesteryear are warranted but inadequate: this is music of today, for tomorrow. On the flip, beloved Not Not Fun in-laws Mythical Beast return to the vinyl spotlight with two luminous soul meditations conjured during the past winter’s grey maze of days. Both ballads burn with Corinne’s voice-for-the-voiceless defiance, wind-draped and incensed by Jeremiah and Aaron’s subtle electric string energies. Naked music for open spaces, empty skies, endless nights. High-audio 45 RPM 12″ EPs in matte-jackets with cloud-skull artwork by Blackblack beauty Diva Dompe. Edition of 415
