Kanaan - NOR | Jansen Records
FFO: Mythic Sunships, Motorpsycho, Hedvig Mollestad
Kanaan produce so much music that the fuzz pedals hardly need to be turned off between each session. Once again, they step out of the rehearsal room, and with them they’ve got the brand new album Downpour.
The band themselves say they feel that the chemistry and songwriting on this record, to a greater extent, allows them to own the rock language that they flirted with on Earthbound, and it feels like a worthy sequel to a record that has been very important in the band’s history. It’s hard not to agree with that.
Since Kanaan released their fourth album Earthbound on Jansen Records in November 2021, they’ve also managed to release the 27-minute long single “Beyond” and the session album Diversions vol. 1 – Softly through Sunshine, before they now release Downpour. There are no days off in the calendars of Eskild Myrvoll, Ingvald André Vassbø and Ask Vatn Strøm.
SEK - Berlin (Members of Elder, Gavial [ehemals Tourette Boys], Gaffa Ghandi)
Behold! New special forces are in town! SEK, consisting of Kaiser (Tourette Boys), Reverend Rebound (Elder, Gaffa Ghandi), and Rüdiger Gonzales (Gaffa Ghandi), emerged out of the urge to channel and melt all the negative emotions occuring due to lockdowns and pandemic madness into flourishing free form and krauty spacejams.
