MP3 At 3PM: Old Canes

oldcanes3869It’s a mystery how Old Canes have somehow eluded indie/folk fame for the five years they have been around. At first exposure, the band, which releases Feral Harmonic tomorrow on Saddle Creek, will leave you wondering how you have not encountered it before. With their sophomore album, Old Canes have continued with their riotous interpretation of folk. The cool voice of frontman Chris Crisci (Appleseed Cast)—backed by effervescent instrumental arrangements of energized guitars, brass and drums—translates into sultry and poetic commentaries on what it’s to live the human life, with all of its joys and pains. MAGNET is proud to premiere the lesson-teaching “Trust” below.

    Early Morning Hymns was an amazing album, I was first introduced to Old Canes from a skate video way back. Can’t wait to hear the rest of the album.
