Local rapper Dan Kanvis released his debut album, Windows
, six months ago, and he's already back with an EP called Parallel
. This release is three short tracks, and Kanvis uses his time on each song wisely: he delivers words with sparse clarity, and the placid production cast his assured vocals in a cool light. Kanvis hits his stride on "Watch My Feet," feeding off the watery synths, hand-drum percussion, and fluid, funky bass line for a tender tune about getting lost in the moment. "Watch My Feet" is today's 12 O'Clock Track
, and a good primer on Kanvis, who will celebrate the release of Parallel
on Friday; Nick Astro
, and Keiya open, and the show kicks off at 8 PM.
