Last year we gave a very positive review to Landfork's second album, Nights At The Kashmir Burlesk, and we're equally admiring of new disc Trust. Landfork is the electronica persona of Jon Gant, an accomplished rootsy songsmith. As Landfork, he explores different sonic territory, with equal skill. Persuasive vocals meet insistent beats and moody soundscapes, to compelling effect. The singles "When I Needed You" and "All I Need To Know" provide a good intro to his style. Created on a trip to Mexico, these songs were recorded during a residency at The Banff Centre for the Arts by the much-travelled Gant.
Landfork plays a hometown release party at Calgary's Palomino on July 25, as a duo.
