City Canyons Records' full catalogue including its current releases are now available through the world's most famous online retailer, Amazon.com. Among the albums available from City Canyons Records that can be purchased at Amazon.com are such well-received recent releases as The Velma's STATION, Jen Elliott and Bluestruck's 8 DAYS DOWN, The Alrights' HIGH SCHOOL and City Canyons' recent United Kingdom release, ANEMO's "slowburn" .
Ricky Flake at the Sun Herald had high praise for The Velma's and STATION'S "hook laden songs,' "white-hot guitars," top notch vocals and "playful punky twists" Joanne Cohen-Schenker of Blogcritics Magazine raved about 8 DAYS DOWN saying, "" All in all, Jen Elliott is a poetic siren with a panoramic sound window that ranges from fiery to finesse." Jen Cray of Ink 19 was similarly enthusiastic about The Alrights album remarking that "Toby Churchill's Kravitz tone is the prime pull to the band's can't-put-your-finger-on-it sound. Soulful and emotionally textural." And Creem Magazine's assessment of ANEMO's "slowburn" was positively glowing: "Whirlin' around like a tornado tossed three-way between Eurythmics, Pretenders and Portishead, this is perky postmodern music made the right way: with a sexy 'n' sassy Hyndeful of heartfelt female attitude."
Other releases of City Canyons Records now available at Amazon.com include the vocally gifted David Steele's UNDERNEATH THE ICE the hard rocking Valerian's INTIMATIONS OF SORROW and the exotic ENTER THE MYSTERIUM from former Dead Can Dance percussionist Peter Ulrich
City Canyons next scheduled release, on April 24, is WEIGHTLESS WITH LOVE from the talented singer/songwriter Sara Wendt. Ms. Wendt's prequel to WEIGHTLESS WITH LOVE, the EP, "Here's Us" was warmly greeted by Jon Sobel of Blogcritics Magazine: "Sara Wendt's captivating EP "Here's Us" meets the expectations raised by its promotional copy: 'rocking yet delicate and nuanced... featuring haunting overtones that make her music both vivid and dreamy.'" With WEIGHTLESS WITH LOVE, Ms. Wendt dives into more mysterious and more beautiful depths than ever before.
