Wide Awake with Canon

For those who discovered Coldplay before their coming of age, and cherished the sounds of their Blue Room EP could very easily fall for Canon. Led by the haunting delivery of vocalist Jason Turbin (think Thom Yorke and King Crimson's Adrian Belew) and rounded out by the fine craftmanship of bassist Benji Pope, drummer Cassidy Turbin, and guitarist Tieg Johnson, Canon adds a welcomed twist to indie rock's current Neutral Milk Hotel/Bright Eyes homage. Canon's meticulous touch is pristine in song and production, thus the Hollywood foursome create some of the most elegant songs heard ("Alive," "Don't Trust the Teachers") since Radiohead's earliest b-sides. Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, Ima Robot), Wide Awake is slated for a February 27, 2007 release on Mercy Records. It's time to trip the light fantastic with Canon.
