CanBe - Pluck Review
by Eric Bodrero

If the '60's ever spawned a bastard child, then CanBe is its evil twin. Floating acoustic guitars over Beach Boys era keyboard intermingles with a hint of jazz bass-and-drum thrown in over dreamy ballad-esque atmospherics and "I-can't-sing-but-I'll-belt-this-out-anyway" vocals. The sound is at first almost dated, and comes across as something that a frustrated producer buried in the floorboards of a vacant shutdown music studio for forty years, only to resurrect it and release it for a new Austin Powers movie soundtrack. However, the more you get into, the more crusty, crunchy layers you peel back, exposing an almost beach-punk foundation. CanBe is not for the obscure-o-phobic, nor any who loathe the sound of the '60's and '70's. Uninitiated indie rockers need not apply. Hey, was that a penny whistle I just heard?
