9/10 Mike Staff review, 20 February 2013

The good records all seem to come in waves. Some weeks it’s a disheartening trudge through a reviews pile of mostly chaff, but then there’s weeks like these where everything I pick up seems to be marvellous. I don’t know if it’s the unseasonal (and unexpected) sunshine we’re getting here in Leeds today but all today’s records sound great. I sure am keen on records.

Anyway, this is Cankun’s second full-length and first on vinyl, and it sees Vincent Caylet honing his tropical post-dubby sound with smooth lazy Flying Lotus-esque beats rubbing up against Sun Araw-esque hazy improv choogle in a constantly evolving kaleidoscope of summer shuffles and psychedelic loop’n’drone weirdness with weird disembodied vocals in a distant tropical fug. It’s quite experimental and difficult to pin down but there’s a constant woozy swirling looped feel to everything which is really tasty. It’s kind of somewhere between the blissed out summer future-dub of that Sun Araw, M Geddes Gengras & the Congos masterpiece from last year (perhaps no coincidence since this LP was mastered by Gengras) and the soft playful bedroom psych adventurism of the Soft Walls LP. Lush, hypnotic, psychedelic and danceable. I like it.
