ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"After All This Time, After All Is Ready"

By Marc Hawthorne / SF Weekly


Sometimes it's good to hit the ground running, and sometimes that just means you're about to bite off
more than you can chew. Cannons & Clouds founders Zachary Blizzard and Joshua Kane realized the latter after
doing the former, which explains why it's taken three years for the
band to complete its debut album, After All. "We had a record's
worth of songs written that we were really proud of, and instead of
putting together a functioning band and recording a couple of EPs, we
went straight into the studio and began recording a full-length
record," Kane says. "I don't think we were fully prepared for the
monetary commitment it would take to achieve our vision."
Now a sextet with a full-time harpist, this San Francisco band
specializes in smartly designed folk-pop, with influences like Red
House Painters, Elliott Smith, and Pedro the Lion offering a good idea
of what to expect. Tonight's show at Bottom of the Hill is the release
party for After All, which is on the fledgling Los Gatos label Side with Us.
It includes all of the bells and whistles that the original duo set out
to document, and the passionate recording is complemented by equally
intense words. "Lyrically, it's a rather candid, brutally honest
chronicle of a few years in Zach's life," Kane says. "Jack London's
novella To Build a Fire was a minor inspiration, too, as Zach
and I found that there was a striking metaphorical parallel between the
protagonist's struggle/journey and his own." And picking up where they
left off three years ago, Cannons & Clouds have already written the
follow-up to After All.

Cannons and Clouds, Heaven and Moon
This band is stellar! Insight, sweet tenderness, haunting lyrics...Cannons and Clouds has real soul. I can't wait for a tour, meanwhile the CD is so worth having beginning to end. Musically they pull out all the instruments intimately, vocally Zach is a voice that will stay with you, and Cannons and Clouds as a band has a real future. Such a treat the CD is finally here!
