Flying Canyon's sole release burns slowly. The phantom feedback of guitarist and producer Glenn Donaldson haunts Cayce Lindner's rural ballads and brooding dirges. Lindner's roots are planted in the hippie country of Kris Kristofferson and Neil Young and '90s lo-fi: Sebadoh, Red Red Meat. But unlike most indie singer-songwriters, who are forever college kids, Lindner's lumbering sincerity is that of a man, one who believes in the mythology of classic rock 'n' roll. This is heavy folk music, maybe even painful at times - but always great.
