OV PRESENTS: Kan Wakan TONIGHT @ The Echoplex!
OV is very excited to present Kan Wakan tonight at The Echoplex!
This Los Angeles post-rock orchestral group has been getting nothing but great reviews for their newest EP Forever Found. Begun in 2012, this Silverlake group joined in "an effort to fuse classical minimalism and experimental soul within a more accessible sonic environment." Their efforts have been a success as they are getting ready to launch their debut album and have been nice to stop by the Los Angeles are to share their music with us. Last November we were very fortunate to have them perform an intimate set in the loft. Tonight, you get another chance to see Kan Wakan in all their beautiful glory on the Echoplex stage. The show is free and also features OV fave and 4AD signing Lo-Fang as support!
But if that's not enough, here's what our friends at The Echoplex had to say about this talented group,"Kan Wakan arrive with a striking breadth of vision that immediately places them among modern pop's most beguiling and inventive new artists. The Los Angeles-based group's extraordinary self-titled debut EP introduces their ornate and enveloping amalgam of psychedelic soul, post rock, alternative Americana, noir jazz, 60s soundtrack stylings, and orchestral pop, all reshaped and rearranged to create something both startlingly original and utterly contemporary."
We hope to see you at The Echoplex tonight at 8PM! In the meantime give "Midnight Moon" a listen:
