Two improvisations recorded live in Tulsa "for a solo canoe trip thru mind tunnels".

Notice was immediately taken by this release from Talk West, the project of Dylan Aycock of Tulsa’s Scissor Tail Records. On Canyon Lip, he works primarily with lush pedal steel and steely synthesizers to craft drones with a remarkably physical presence.

On “Finally, That River Twists,” which makes up Side A, rich and airy pedal steel loops unfold alongside light percussion touches, patiently unfolding. Side B’s “With No Regrets” introduces more tension, playing on a deep sense of struggle buried in its title. Solitude prevails against subtle intrusions of percussion that hint at missed connections, like cars passing one another on a rural road at dusk. Through minimal means, Canyon Lip achieves a visceral sense of time, evoking the slowly unfolding movement of the sun, barely noticed until the gloaming.
