The Cannanes

It’s been 11 years since we last heard from Australian indie-poppers The Cannanes. Their 2002 album Trouble Seemed So Far Away hit and then the band just seemed to quietly leave the stage for other pursuits.  Luckily for fans, the band, who started their career almost 30 years ago, has come together in the studio once more and produced the Small Batch EP.  Full of the melodic and earnestly affective songs that have become the hallmark of their sound since their early days as a band, Small Batch shows a band still driven to create–stretching its legs and doing what it does best.

The band’s first single “Bumper” from their upcoming EP has drawn comparisons to past artists like The Go-Betweens and The Chills, but it’s their sense of playful melodicism and wistful lyrics that sets them up as modern mantle-bearers for this post-twee/jangle-pop sound.  And it seems that there are those who are eager to reconstruct these proto-typical sounds.  UK producer Richie Phoe recently took to the task of pulling apart and putting back together this first single from Small Batch.  And his downtempo reworking adds layers of reverb and stoic beats which–oddly enough–turns the song into something that could easily have come from The Concretes or El Perro del Mar.

Beats Per Minute is pleased to premiere Richie Phoe’s remix of “Bumper” from the upcoming Small Batch EP by The Cannanes.
