Canyons (DFA, Modular, Hole in The Sky)
If you came along and partied with us on New Years Eve here at Guern’s and danced your arse off to the newly heralded king of summer groove, Tensnake, then you’d remember that it was pretty clear everyone here that packed the dance floor like a swarm of termites in unison just wanted more. Bring on summer and that blend of driving new house that’s making the rounds and getting pushed overseas by those cats at DFA Records. It’s pretty much the reason why Oz natives Canyons found their new single My Rescue getting thrashed on the Triple J transmitting airwaves of our tax paying dollar. These innovative dudes who we’ve had the pleasure of hosting at Guernica now over a series of awesome parties are signed abroad in the DFA family for good reason; their sound is exactly what everyone’s wanting to party to. My Rescue was the perfect tune to make it clear this due weren’t some one trick pony with their big remix of Tame Impala the year previous, and they’re signing some dope acts and tracks to their own Hole in the Sky label too. Any-who, it’s definitely about trying to catch Canyons sometime soon at a festival or the backwoods Guern’s and hearing these guys warp your mind with summer house goodness. Get on it. Canyons are playing at Guernica on Friday 21st January.
