The only problem with all-day festivals is that certain acts whose music would have benefited from an evening slot with cool stage lighting are instead made to play in light of day. Chrome Canyon is one of those bands.
Chrome Canyon’s performance at the Stones Throw Superfest occurred midday as the sun rays was probably the most intense. The environmental factor played a sharp contrast to the dark and cinematic soundscapes that the band jammed during their set. One could argue that their music was fitting given the lazy weekend afternoon mood, but I thought that their sonics would have been better understood and appreciated if it were listened to in dimly lit club setting, with an intimacy that forces you to get lost in their complex sounds.
I took a moment during their set and closed my eyes. I listened to way their instruments uniquely morphed sounds to create a wash of sonics that really were quite breathtaking. Hopefully, the rest of the crowd at Superfest felt that way as well.
