Old Canes is the solo project of The Appleseed Cast’s frontman Chris Crisci. This album came out in 2004, but I just heard it for the first time last week. If you are familiar with Appleseed Cast’s sound and song writing, you will probably see the similarities immediately. Crisci, it seems, decided to take the atmospheres and effects of TAC and replace them with strummed guitars, banjos, harmonicas, toy pianos, xylophones, trumpets, and the like. In short, Early Morning Hymns is the perfect soundtrack to driving in Montana forests or waking up in the woods to a bright morning.
