Henry Canyons – Cool Side Of The Pillow – OUT NOW!

Backwoodz Studioz is excited to release our first album with long time Backwoodz collaborator, Henry Canyons.

Backwoodz Studioz is proud to release Henry Canyons‘ first full-length LP exclusively under the Backwoodz umbrella. Released on April 13, The Cool Side of the Pillow is entirely produced by Henry’s longtime collaborator, Bones, with guest features from billy woods and Homeboy Sandman. It’s a project that finds Henry putting his effortless flows to the test over Bones’ rangy production, flipping new styles with every change up and beat switch.

This album is tailor-made for vinyl, where each side of the proverbial pillow has it’s own distinct vibe…

 

SIDE A:

  1.  Poison Into Medicine Intro
  2.  The Cool Side (feat. Zoe Rose Palladino)
  3.  I’m On It
  4.  Wanna Be Myself (Interlude)
  5.  Goodnight Moon
  6.  Easy Come, Easy Go
  7.  Special Blend (feat. Homeboy Sandman & Zoe Rose Palladino)

 

SIDE B:

  1. It Don’t Mean A Thing (feat. billy woods)
  2. Quiet Tongues
  3. Not Today
  4. Innate Communication (feat. Googie)
  5. To The Dreamers

The album artwork is by Quetzilla who creates a nice vibe for Cool Side, with art that blends nicely with the blue marbled vinyl: clean, laid back, suggestive and clear at the same time. The limited edition vinyl features a custom blue marble colored vinyl in a a 12″ jacket with artwork. Also available are 50 album collector t-shirts! Available now directly from Backwoodz! Traffic Distribution can be contacted for wholesale inquiries.

Please be aware that we are pressing only 300 limited-edition copies of this release. Henry’s only previous short run vinyl for Canyonland [Jakarta] sold out very quickly, so keep that in mind with these pre-orders.

PREMIERE: Henry Canyons La Côte West EP & Documentary

La Côte West EP by Henry Canyons

La Côte West is Henry Canyons’ first official release since 2015’s Canyonland. Inspired by his experiences during the BoiSakré artist residency in Biarritz, France, La Côte West is an unusual project that reflects Henry’s unique vision. The regional landscapes and mood of Biarritz ( a small coastal surf town in the Southwest of France) leave their imprint all over this six song EP.  Working with a different producer for each song, his efforts tie disparate sounds and lyrical vignettes into a stirring reflection of his two months in country.

Blockhead Announces New Album FUNERAL BALLOONS [PRE-ORDERS LIVE!] 💀🎈

Backwoodz Is Proud To Release Blockhead’s New Album On Vinyl & CD! Pre-orders Are Live Now! In Stores Sept 7, 2017.

Funeral Balloons is the new album from acclaimed producer & NYC fixture Blockhead [real name; Tony Simon]. Funeral Balloons is as bold and irreverent as the title suggests; from the uplifting and energetic mood of “A Bad Case Of The Sundays” to the spaced out airy grooves found on “UFMOG” all the way to the 1970’s car chase anthem like “Escape from NY”, the songs never stop in one place.

While, at it’s core, Funeral Balloons doesn’t stray far from the kind of music Blockhead has been making since his debut Music by Cavelight,  his evolution as a producer is on full display, exploring different avenues and sounds with every new release and continuing to forge his own lane between the worlds of Hip hop and electronic music.

The album artwork is by Owen Brozman, a long time Blockhead collaborator, as well as the artist behind Aesop Rock & Blockhead’s opus Labor Days. The vinyl package consists of x2 black vinyls in a wide spine 12″ jacket. The CD comes in a 6 panel digipak. Also made only 50 album collector t-shirts! The pre-orders are available now directly from Backwoodz! Fat Beats Distribution can be contacted for wholesale inquiries.
