Canon Blue Signs With Rumraket

Finally after many long sleepless nights spent wandering aimlessly across the lonely back-country, Canon Blue has found a home in Denmark. Rumraket is a label started and run by the wonderful band Efterklang, home to such amazing artists as Grizzly Bear, Amiina, Slaraffenland, Taxi Taxi! and of course the afor-mentioned Efterklang.

The album has been re-mixed by Chris Taylor (Grizzly Bear, Dirty Projectors) and mastered by Cristian Vogel. If you haven’t seen Grizzly Bear live or at least bought their record ‘yellow house’ you are destined to have a moment of regret. and if you never experienced the magnificent madness of Cristian Vogel, you have yet to live. (remyxomatosis just might change your life).

and if that wasn’t enough, new artwork has been crafted by the insanely talented Ben Tousley. please go and witness a master at work…

The album is slated for a European release of Sept. 24th. All Americans will have to wait unfortunately…..probably will do us good though….we’ve had it easy for way too long…..

more updates on tour dates, remixes and a video to follow…..


Rilke Rock

…..

whoever was beaten by this Angel
(who often simply declined the fight)
went away proud and strengthened
and great from that harsh hand,
that kneaded him as if to change his shape.
winning does not tempt that man.
this is how he grows: by being defeated, decisively,
by constantly greater beings.
