Who?

The Great American Canyon Band is the stage name of the husband and wife duo that is Paul and Krystal Jean Masson. The Chicago duo deal in slow-paced folk and the Tumbleweed 7” is the world’s introduction to their upcoming debut album.

How is it?

The Tumbleweed 7” is a very short glimpse of The Great American Canyon Band’s rootsy, ambient folk. Made with only a handful of instruments, the 7”, comprised of only two tracks, is music for a lazy, summer’s night. Both tracks are calm and slow, and filled with handclaps, deep male vocals, and dusty acoustic guitars. Opener ‘Tumbleweed’ is quite good and whilst technically there’s no problems, there’s nothing particularly striking about it. The same goes for ‘Burn’. There’s very little difference between the two tracks and neither of them stay in the listener’s mind. It’s far too short a showcase of the band to determine how good the band is, but the mediocrity of the 7” isn’t too promising. What it does achieve though, is building an intense atmosphere around the two tracks, and the sound is truly organic. Hopefully, the 7” is just an introduction rather than a synopsis.
