Music Video Race

We spent a strange and awesome weekend making a music video as part of the Music Video Race. The video will be revealed, along with 15 others, at the Premiere at The Independent on July 20th. Until then, here are some behind the scenes pics of the weekend. Huge thanks to the brilliant director Oliver Mellan and producer Minea Herwitz for these shots.

Hifidelics Review & Vinyl Distribution

Lost in Here is now available at Hifidelics, the Chicago indie vinyl distributors.



Some generous words from their site...

Flowing with both the beauty and wrath of nature, San Francisco’s Your Cannons bring forth a full-bodied gulp of psychedelic brightness and dirty post-punk. Lost In Here acts as a sonic maze through breathtaking elements and landscapes, from floating and free-falling through a shoe-gaze sky to being jolted by lightning guitar riffs. While the journey may begin with a few jolts here or there, soon some strutting bass lines and rustling percussion will ease the storm to a peaceful breeze. Your Cannons lure the listener to get lost. 


Your Cannons prove to be a post-punk psychedelic soundscape in their debut album with the breathy coos of vocalist Andrew Chammings floating over trippy grooves, wandering melodies and grinding distortion. Lost in Here paints a mural of night and day violently crashing together at twilight over vast mountains and endless plains. Every song plays a different role, from chilling wind, to shimmering sunlight. With five members hailing from three different countries, it’s easy to see that the combination of influence is rich and eclectic with diversity in Your Cannons. Lost in Here is a testament to the journey that music has the power to become when put in the right hands.

"Lost in Here" featured on The Bay Bridged

Another short, but sweet, review from The Bay Bridged...

"The post-punk/shoegaze quintet bring those genres into new territory with their newest release. Drawing on the traditional use of delay and guitar effects, the group incorporates experimental facets into their slow, waltz-esque sound. It’s a testament to the power of slow, but meaningful, instrumentation and hypnotic melodies. Lost In Here is literally a way to get lost in thought. “Dust Bowl” is sludgy in nature, but utterly captivating in a rhythmic way; “Persephone” is a heartbreaking serenade in slow alternative rock, and it’s damn good."

Two great reviews for Lost in Here...

Mojophenia

"Your Cannons have a refined sound that perfectly accentuates each band member’s musical contribution like they’ve all commandeered an individually coloured spotlight, flicking on and off with a recurring change in tone, the sound produces a woozy and almost indefinable edge to what is already a stockpile of carefully calibrated gems. West Coast Art-Rock with a wealth of divergent influences, this multi-national five-piece manage to daze and confuse through an array of luxuriously buzzing hyper-riffs – ‘Slate Skies’ below is a confident place to start."

Full Review


WordKrapht

"It is a strong debut album that flows from shoe-gazing stoner rock to post-punk psychedelic; it lulls you into the space the band creates and begs you to follow them on their journey. The multi-cultured influences can be heard as we get the almost ambient English/European rock feel that can be traced back to the early days of Pink Floyd, rolled in more modern bands with hints of The Verve, and even older Radiohead, combined with the kick, grit, and liveliness of American rock and roll."
