Biography

Cloudland Canyon is an experimental rock/psychedelic rock band originally from New York, USA.

Cloudland Canyon was formed in 2002 by Kip Uhlhorn and Simon Wojan (a German citizen). After several years of long distance collaboration (and recording sessions held in the US and Germany, the first Cloudland Canyon release, Requiems Der Natur, 2002-2004 was released by Tee Pee in 2006 and was largely a collection of older works and experiments. Cloudland Canyon quickly set about releasing a number of other releases and touring that same year, most notably a single track collaboration 12”/LP entitled Exterminating Angel with Chicago musician Lichens in 2007 on Holy Mountain.[1]

In 2007, the band was signed to Kranky Records and released their first proper album Silver Tongued Sisyphus.[2] In 2008, the band released another collaborative 12” with Mythical Beast on Not Not Fun, as well as their second full length, Lie in Light on Kranky.[3] The latter was chosen as one of top 25 albums of the year 2008 by the Magnet magazine.[4] Cloudland Canyon subsequently moved to Holy Mountain, where the band began their own imprint of Holy Mountain (Intercoastal Artists) for 2010’s album Fin Eaves, which has become their best-received work to date, landing on numerous year-end lists. They went on tour with the Flaming Lips (who also asked the band to collaborate with them[5]) as well as with Interpol and Bear in Heaven. Members of the Arcade Fire even mentioned the band in the Paste magazine.
