Canaris could very well be called The Two Sides of Chris Brokaw if it were an album interested in being straightforward. It is an album of instrumental pieces performed solo by Brokaw on acoustic guitar. The first half seems to be simple enough, all clean chords and picked notes repeating over and over. But the way they rise and fall, the way parts blend into one another make the album more complicated, more intricate as it goes, even as its parts remain simple. But it is on the second half, where Brokaw employs loops and pedals to the guitar, that he really shines.

Chris Brokaw grew up in and around New York City and moved to Boston in 1986. His first distinguished foray into rock was in 1990 as the drummer for slow-core progenitors Codeine, who by themselves seemed to establish a whole new sub-genre in music. After an LP and EP released over two years, Chris left the New York-based Codeine to play exclusively in Boston band Come, with whom he'd been playing guitar for about a year as well.
