"Soaring like The Eagles on Robitussin, Flying Canyons mournful California folk-rock slowly ascends into the desert sky. Imagine the distant moan of a melted CSN&Y cassette floating up from a boombox deep in a ravine while crows pick at a corpse on the mesa. Existing in the sun-baked tradition of burnt-out Cosmic Californians like Sky Sunlight Saxon, Skip Spence, David Crosby and Phil Perlman, frontman Cayce Lindner is tapping a rich vein of indigenous folk, rock & country. Much like their forefathers, Flying Canyon are not traditionalists. With organ, fuzz bass, cathedral harmonies & cavernous drums, the band slows the pace to a funeral crawl.  An apocalyptic and almost religious feeling emanates from this music, while Lindner, with quavering vocals of the Young/Garcia axis and a sensitive masculinity akin to Kristofferson, delivers his high desert eulogies; mournful tales of eternal love and despair. Backing Lindner in Flying Canyon are Shayde Sartin (Kelley Stoltz, The Skygreen Leopards, Giant Skyflower Band, etc) and Jewelled Antlers Glenn Donaldson (The Skygreen Leopards, Thuja, Giant Skyflower Band, The Franciscan Hobbies, etc). Donaldson recorded Flying Canyon on a crumbling reel-to-reel tape machine at his home in San Franciscos famed Mission District, mere blocks from where Sir Douglas Quintet recorded their classic Together After Five LP." - Soft Abuse.
