Kanaan – Diversions Vol. 1: Softly Through Sunshine (2022)

“Minimalism, contemporary psychedelia and ecstatic acid jams is what constitutes the musical landscape which Kanaan and HÃ¥vard are voyaging through. Ersland contributes with otherworldly synthesizers, acoustic piano and his signature cranked Hammond organ. Diversions Vol. 1: Softly Through Sunshine documents spontaneity and fertile creativity in a meeting between an open minded, cutting edge and explosive rock band and one of Norway’s most interesting keyboard players.”

  1. The sound of psych at the leading edge, Kanaan just knows how to do it.
    With a funky, beepy, sci-fi intro leading off Voyaging, this is another expert edition of jazz-colored psych jams bolstered by truly amazing drumming. From hyper-psych to downtempo and back again, it’s a master-class of studio skill, instrumental prowess and the ability to blend a plethora of sounds into an abstract swirl of harmony that I don’t think many other bands can execute.
