NEW ARTIST FINDS: CANOPY CLIMBERS
I don’t know where Little Rock is in the United States, but a lot of artists on Soundcloud seem to be from there. Today I’m listening to a pretty killer trio called Canopy Climbers and I’ve got a real good feeling that you’re going to like them. These guys were curated by Bitcandy user Callmearry, so big props to you! Another cool thing about Canopy Climbers is that they apparently live in three different cities now (Little Rock too little?) and make music via the internet. I gotta say, if this music was made through the internet, then there’s a lot of hope for music when we all turn into computers. Hooray!
CANOPY CLIMBERS – PILLS
Oh yeah, that piano intro just does it for you, right?! Canopy Climbers have already released a debut album titled Distances and a sophomore release called Miles since their founding in 2009. This song however forms part of their recently released EP Blindfold and was the first thing to catch our attention. The Blindfold EP features 3 other tracks that are all definitely worth a listen. In fact, just download the whole EP off iTunes. Obviously I like the way he cries out for his pills. It’s poetic. Real. Complicated. Junkie behavior? Definitely! OK, but seriously, go listen to Blindfold EP now.
CANOPY CLIMBERS - LAZARUS
OK, so I listened to Pills and I thought it was pretty cool. But then I watched this video and I think I fell in love. And it wasn’t just because these three guys are totally adorable. This song, off their debut album, is great. Beyond great, it’s magical! And if you’re more into this sort of thing, their debut album is on iTunes too, bitches! Go get it. As it says in their bio, they really stripped down their sound for their debut album (bold choice) and although most people usually do things the other way around, I think it turned out great.
CANOPY CLIMBERS - ROBBERS
I’m a sucker for these YouTube recording sessions, but I thought this song was worth including, because the quality of their live sound is perhaps even better than what we heard previously. Wow! It’s like every time I click on something from this band I’m completely surprised and delighted!
OK, OK! You heard them. You loved them. You know what they’re called. Go look them up! You’re too lazy, aren’t you?! OK, FINE. Here are a bunch of links to check out but you can type “Canopy Climbers” into the iTunes store yourself, can’t you? Aw, f**k off! (LOVE YOU xxx)
About Bianca Fernandes
Bianca Fernandes has an unfounded love for Taylor Swift and an unexplainable, burning hatred for Bob Dylan. In her opinion, that's the perfect combination to be a music reviewer. And she doesn't give an F about what you have to say about it. She writes for one person, and that's herself. Think grumpy cat with a weakness for music and watching Miley Cyrus twerk. But she does other things simply for cash, like social media, web content creation and some crazy blogging when necessary.
