cabane is the new folk project of Soy Un Caballo creator Thomas Jean Henri. His first release, a double a-side 7 inch single called sangokaku / la gomera , features appearances by Will Oldham (Bonnie Prince Billy), Kate Stables (This Is The Kit) and Caroline Gabard (Boy & The Echo Choir) as well as string arrangement by Sean O’Hagan of The High Llamas and mixed by Ash Workman (Metronomy, François and the Atlas Mountains).
This is probably totally irrelevant, but for your information, ‘Sango-kaku’ is a large deciduous shrub or a small tree, while La Gomera is one of Spain’s Canary Islands, located off the coast of Africa. The video for ‘sangokaku’, which is similar to Bright Eyes’ video for ‘First Day of my Life’, was directed by Jerome Guiot and records the reactions of Thomas’ loved ones listening to the song for the first time.
The single is out now via Need No Water Records.
