RECORD OF THE WEEK

Canyons Of Static – Farewell Shadows

A five track digipack, Farewell Shadows blends well-known and perfected aspects of Post Rock into a tapestry-like picture of intricacy, it proves that Canyons of Static are into their music for the sake of their music. Honest and straight-up tracks that don’t sucker punch the listener, friends of the genre as well as newcomers will find this a highly accessible release that keeps them coming back for more while keeping delicate sounds and tones for future listens.

Canyons of Static is an instrumental quintet that blends the distorted melodies of shoegaze with the intensely emotional aspects of post-rock. With no central songwriter, the music evolves from a collective process of experimentation challenging the boundaries and forms of traditional rock music. They self-released two ep’s in 2006 and their first full-length album, The Disappearance, in 2008. Canyons of Static continues to grow their audience through a dynamic live show. Performances feature homemade abstract films projected onto multiple screens creating a unique experience of sight and sound.
