Editors’ Notes

Prepare to be wowed by the seamless amalgam of early folk, ‘60s pop, and orchestral balladry offered by this impressive Los Angeles ensemble. With the gorgeous, silken (but perhaps tear-stained) vocals of Kristianne Bautista and a huge cadre of musicians and contributors (saxophone, a variety of percussion, Moog synthesizer, strings, pedal steel, upright bass, and more), Kan Wakan is the brainchild of composer and musician Gueorgui Linev, who seems to have been raised on everything from John Barry (known for work on James Bond film themes) to Fairport Convention and Malibu canyon jazz and folk-rock of the '70s. While Linev covers a lot of musical history in his influences—“Why Don’t You Save Me?” and “Like I Need You” sound like a cross between Dusty Springfield and Aretha Franklin, and cinematic tunes like “Forever Found” and the jazz-tinged “Sawdust” evoke early James Bond soundtracking—he has a truly fresh take on those influences. Linev even breathes a little downtempo chill into the sultry “Moving On” and “Are We Saying Goodbye,” while the “Midnight Moon” tracks slither and drift with delicious inventiveness.

Customer Reviews

This is the album I’ve been looking for!

Every Tuesday, I go through the Alternative sections, looking for new music that stirs my soul. I have finally found it! The music here is ornate, moody and lush. Just what I need after this harsh winter. I can’t wait to get the rest of it.

Just too good

Never heard of Kan Wakan til yesterday, and I’m obviously not the demographic this group is after (old). But God, what fabulous music!! Am genuinely touched by the depth and beauty of the sound, and can’t wait to share my “find” with fellow fogies.

I need you

Nice beat with a sultry and sexy sound.
