“ South Bay, California quartet Canor digs into 2010 with their debut EP, Vol. 1, with a guitar-oriented alt-rock sound, catchy tunes and a vocalist who’s a bit out of the ordinary. Canor brings an interesting and edgy dynamic to their debut EP, Vol. 1, and they make it work by keeping things simple. The songs on Vol. 1 won't take over the radio airwaves anytime soon, but they are solid and catchy offerings that few listeners would take umbrage with. Vol. 1 is a solid start. ”
“It's quite nice. Upon listening to this, I'm extremely excited to see the possible growth of Canor. For a self-released ep there's a professional sound here. It's composed with a clear intonation in mind and transitions smoothly within the track; they avoid many of the pratfalls-the oddly syncopated beats, muddled vocals, disjointed guitar and bass lines-that plague so many other bands of their vein. The sound is mature and developed, especially considering the median age for the band is twenty-something; to achieve this kind of sound and focus excites me. ... There are a lot of youthful elements in both the composition of the music and lyrics, and when handled with a certain focus and maturity it develops into something that doesn't sound annoying and irreverent but rather vulnerable, raw, and real. Canor elicits this feeling beautifully here. I like Vol. 1 quite a bit and really want to see what they go next, and go further with this sound.”
