Vincent Caylet a.k.a. Cankun drops a nice little blob of Summer onto the past few cold and windy February/March nites. We are warmed by his brand of psychedelic island music, ethereal layers of looped guitars and percussion, like "Beach Point Pleasant" Ducktails mixed with pre-Suburban Tours Rangers. According to Jheri, dude's big into "collages, 60's urban architecture, coral sand beaches and piña coladas." He's also in the currently-on-hiatus band Archers By the Sea, who I had honestly never heard before his solo stuff popped up.

Cankun has a cassette out this Spring on Not Not Fun (via AZ) and so far has revealed three recorded pieces to the world - "Striking Bicycles" (download at AZ), "Coral Sands" (streaming below) and an excerpt from "Jaguar Dance" which received the mirrored video treatment below by Jónó Mí Ló a.k.a. Daytime Television.
