After almost four years since their noise -generating LP put them on the map, North Carolina’s Can Joann have returned to the forum once again with the release of 2010’s “Second Language.”
Hook wizard and guitarist Ryan Benjamin, bassist Andrew Bernish, drummer Michel Inserny and vocalist Joel Peck crafted their latest masterpiece over the course of a year spent fine-tuning, exacting, and perfecting the essential ingredients that would combine to form the sonic spirit heard in the album’s six tracks.
As it became apparent that the band was redefining its sound and scope, the members decided to hold off on a rushed release, as requested by a number of interested parties and industries. Refusing to blindly compromise the quality of their music, or jeopardize the synergy they cherish as collaborators, the band continued collecting and crafting moments of inspiration as they occurred. The result is "Second Language"-their greatest work to date.
True inspiration can’t be sold, just as wisdom can’t be told. Both require experience and reflection-the hallmark of Can Joann’s latest collection of rock songs.
