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.

Check out the new Henry Canyons video for “C’est La Vie” !!
“If you listened to the billy woods flash anthology #TodayIWroteNothing and were left questioning, among other things, who was the guy with the baritone voice on “Bicycles” and “Poor Company,” Canyonland is the best place to find your answer. For starters, it’s Henry Canyons, “a half-French Jewish Brooklynite transplanted to Los Angeles.” As you might’ve guessed from the aforementioned cameos, Canyons isn’t all tone and no substance; he has a story to tell and does so with the nomadic perspective and earned effortlessness of a true troubadour. And if some lingering influence of Capitalism and Schizophrenia should rear its zany head, so it goes. That’s life. “C’est la vie,” dun.” – Tiny Mix Tapes

Over the course of five tracks, the Brooklyn-bred, LA based MC lays out his unique artistic vision on One Thousand Plateaus. Effortlessly melodic flows and witty wordplay find purchase over a lush soundscape provided by BoomBaptist, Willie Green and Essex Dogs; Canyons work here is at once stylish and cerebral. Describing his thought process on the EP, Henry Canyons said “One Thousand Plateaus is not a narrative or anecdotal piece. Yes, there are stories inside the songs, but overall it acts as a display of a current state of affairs, at least how I see them. Inspired by Deleuze and Guattari’s book of sociological theory under the same title, the EP is my interpretation of their writings on social structure; particularly that of the rhizome. Difficult to pinpoint and directly define, the rhizome is a free flowing network of beings and systems that move fluidly through time and space completely free of hierarchy. Everything is an expression of multiplicity, the constant flow of desire, momentum, ebb and flow. Because of the perpetual motion and lack of hierarchical structure, there is no order or formula to how one must exist or consume.” Check out the EP now…
