Majestic melodies. Sweeping instrumentation that flies. Intricate, precise arrangements. The Minor Canon are watchmakers of indie rock. In fact, the lyrics seem almost an afterthought. I’ve listened to No Good Deed Goes Unpunished several times now, and I can’t tell you what any of the songs are about. I just can’t get past the music. I try to force myself to pay attention, but the sounds make me drift. Fantastic meditative music for fans of Belle & Sebastian, Detective Kalita, Midlake, and The Acorn.
