Brooklyn based band Canet, started out as an Experimental-Folk band in 2012, focusing then primarily on acoustic oriented songs, which is the general vibe of their first release "Maybe One Day" a solid collaboration between songwriter Agusti Canet and producer Daniel Tortoledo. Their first album, which is deeply influenced by Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan served as a perfect platform to pave the road for their upcoming EP, "Sounds From The Sea".

     In early 2013 the two founding members of the band, invited old time friends Ted MacInnes (drums) and Mariana Iranzi (bass) to play a role in their second production, recorded at Creeksound Studio in Connecticut, engineered by David Kaye, who also participated in the overall sound of this new material by adding pedal steel and dobro to the mix. Recently, Canet has been compared to the sounds of bands such as The Rolling Stones, Wilco, Pink Floyd and The Velvet Underground.

The New York-based psychedelic rock band The Highway came into being nearly a decade ago. Daniel Tortoledo (vocals/bass), Ted MacInnes (drums/bg vocals), Adam Douglass (guitar/bg vocals) and Griffin McMahon (keys/bg vocals) connected over shared influences, both earthly and intangible: Philosophy. Perspective. The vastness of outer space. Mysticism. Hitchcock’s psychological mindfucks. Grassy fields and dense forests. Color. The expansiveness of the United States.The result of their collaboration is a singular sound—one that has the ability to completely take you over.

 

Within the cacophonous, but highly orchestrated, rock trances is a writing process steeped in tradition. The Highway adheres to the mantra of less is more, and there is order here in the chaos of sound. Starting with simple chords, the band creates a spacious structure in which to elaborate.Adding psychedelic arrangements and soulful lyrics (sung with fervor by Daniel Tortoledo) they infect with potent nostalgia. They elicit a feeling of having discovered something entirely new. Their songs ebb and flow, often building to a riot—a well-crafted wall of sound, punctuated by the tweaked out echoes of dreams and philosophical spoken lyrics.
