Paul Larson certainly has an impressive CV. His previous work has seen him work with various members of Dntel, the Postal Service and Beachwood Sparks. His new adventures are taking place under the Minor Canon moniker and if ‘A False Start’ is anything to go by he could soon have Jose Gonzalez supporting him and his five band mates rather than the other way around. The song has a fresh intimacy, oodles of calming atmosphere and fleeting brass moments to die for. Towards the end there is an ill-advised jump to your feet sequence that lacks the coherency of what went on before. In saying that you’ll spool many a cassette to find a demo as accomplished as this one. KD
