  • cankun – only the sun is full of gold – not not fun

    Vincent Caylet’s state of mind as Cankun has always been sunburnt and woozy but, despite its title, Only The Sun Is Full Of Gold is his first to stray intriguingly into the shade. “I wanted to explore the melancholic aspect of my music, the wild side.” This motive comes through in longer, looser sections, more lurking melodies, and moments of heavier mood, communed through his ongoing language of snake-charmer guitar, heatstroked keyboards, and tribal dub electronics. As always his songs divide and diverge in unexpected moments, collaged from scattered burnzones of improvisation, until endings and beginnings become reversible. Among current French psychedelicists, Cankun’s home-rigged solar panels cast weird reflections, a warped, patient radiance. Long may it gleam. Mastered by Alex Nagle. Artwork as always by Valerian Marguery. Vinyl version on Hands In The Dark. NNF cassette edition includes a different track sequence, as well a bonus song, “Trezz.” Edition of 100.

    St Flour de Mercoire’s patron saint of sunburned guitar and electric mirages issues forth this new homage to an exquisite natural wonder in Southwestern Madagascar which Monsieur Cankun had the pleasure and privilege of witnessing first hand on a personal quest years prior. The strategies employed on last year’s debut, Jaguar Dance, are in even finer form here, fusing solar flares, feathery fields of guitar blur, and skeletal groove metronomes into multi-movement trance states of sunset skyway-psych. Moods crossfade between muted, spiraling, inner space loop-cruises (“Collages,” “Stylo”) and more revved up celebratory waverunners (“Blue Vanilla”, “Jugular Rhythms”) but all share his uniquely fried tonalism and magic touch. Welcome to the waterworld of the Waterfall. Pro-dubbed metallic gold tapes with ecstasy collage artwork by Valerian Marguery. Edition of 150.
