Unique and intriguing local outfit khancoban make gorgeously slow burn records treading the underrepresented line between a kind of folk beauty and the excitement of out-and-out rock 'n' roll noise. They've been compared to Arcade Fire, Wilco and Augie March, which is correct as far as those sorts of things are concerned but doesn't go nearly far enough in telling the full story of the complexity and inherent value in this amazing band.
khancoban's new album "Arches Over The Sun" is out August 12 2011 through Departed Sounds. It has been produced by Nick Huggins (Mick Turner, Kid Sam, Oscar and Martin) and mastered by Casey Rice (Dirty Three, Tortoise) and should serve as a timely reminder that this is a group that deserves our full attention.
