The first CLOUDLAND CANYON release for Kranky was recorded in Brooklyn, Germany and Memphis. It follows on the heels of the well received Requiems Der Natur 2002-2004 album released on the Tee Pee label. Silver Tongue Sisyphus is a secular call to prayer with humming, looping and loping ambient passages interspersed with bursting rhythmic energy and agitated guitar lines. Recent live shows have sounded like an unauthorized soundtrack to netherworld versions of The Swimmer or The Scorceror. Pulling influences from the foggy ether of generations past, Cloudland Canyon has staked their claim to the shadows of cult musical culture of the late 1960s and early 1970s German underground scene.
