Cannons and Clouds write-up in Bay Guardian


I’ve been producing Cannons and Clouds debut album for the last year or so (hoping to finish sometime this spring). They’re going to be playing their first live shwo with my band Super Adventure Club at the Hotel Utah this Sunday and they were featured in the music picks section of the SF Bay Guardian.

Here’s the review:

There’s a casual, understated elegance to the wistful folk rock sounds of local broken-hearts club Cannons and Clouds — it’s there in the band’s slow-building acoustic drama, in Zachary Blizzard’s tender vocals, and in Steven Medd’s expressive brushed-drum rhythms. The septet have a flair for orchestrating unhurried meditations on love and loss and touching reminiscences about dear friends in a vein much like that of Mark Kozelek (Red House Painters and Sun Kil Moon). One listen to the evocatively titled “Red Sullivan Ode to the South” — currently featured on their MySpace profile — and you too will find yourself lost in teary-eyed nostalgia. (Todd Lavoie)??
