"Crane Under Water = Mogwai – The Cure + Prog Rock"

By Ryan Michael Painter

Street: 07.11.06

Crane Under Water wouldn’t have happened if someone hadn’t introduced him to Mogwai. I know so because he told me sitting in a cheap motel room in Salt Lake City as he drove around the country with his girlfriend passing out CD to just about anyone who would listen. Even with that in mind the album only references Mogwai in the use of quiet shifting to loud and its epic instrumental structure. There aren’t nearly the layers you’d find on a Mogwai release and from time to time the guitar dominated songs lean towards progressive rock but instead of completely turning me off to the music it surprises me. With the inclusion of a little violin here and there, some sparse drums and atmospherics the album works rather well without becoming overtly self-gratifying. Not an easy task for a one man band.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Crane Under Water's music is sad. Exuberant. Haunting. Joyful. Often all of these things at once. Brain-child of composer and multi-instrumentalist Adam Janowski, Crane Under Water's debut album is a unique work of self-exploration that couples exceptional writing and emotional performance. While Crane Under Water may never have seen the inside of a concert hall or dance club, it's music has been heard on radio stations throughout the northwest, on podcasts around the nation, and is available in select record stores.
