You're all I ever wanted to uphold
I would never ever let you go
I'm opening and hoping we can grow

Earth child
With your spaced out eyes
I think I recognize you from somewhere
Don't we have something to do together
Like opening the gateway into heaven

Father
Grandfather
Your fire lights the darkness of my soul
Wash me in the color of the rainbow
And plant me in the waters of her womb

Thank you for being civil about this; it's not for me, either. Trolls take note!

A kind of Old style

Great artwork on the album cover. I d like to hear some more from this group. Thanks RP.
Yessssss!
Another Brian Jonestown Follower!
Bill, I am going to go broke at this rate! I have bought almost everything you have played in the last hour; including complete albums! Just kidding! Keep it coming, the money is well spent {#Biggrin}

2000 Light Years from Home > Space Child:

Cosmic segue, Bill! Echoes of 2001...

{#Notworthy}


Nice.
Thank the Lord for PSD to get rid of this dirge.
Defenitly a 10
The cover art is a brilliant visual reinterpretation of ancient Mesoamerican worldview.
Channeling Mick Jagger......
Wonderful! 10 it is.
 
Dreadful.
It's complicated with this tune... it's great in his own way. Very "gewöhnungsbedÌrftig". :)

Unbelievable what some desingers produce,
and what some bands accept!

I call this: "let's-make-art"
Sooo amateurish that it hurts!

 
No cliche left unturned - judgement reserved on the song itself

First hearing, a bit meh.

Second time, oooh, blimey!

Third, wuhoooo!

If you've been eating mushrooms, maybe....

Outstanding!
WOOONDERFUL!

FEELINGS pure!

And, frankly, I am no longer surprised,
that AMERICA rates such music 
"6-point-something" while most "old farts"
easily reach 7.5! 

For me it's a "10" (though I exaggarate 1 point)

PS

Actually, I would've liked it if it were Tool-ish.  To me it sounded like a bad Rusted Root cover band.  Mind you, there's no such thing as a good Rusted Root cover band let alone a good Rusted Root song.  {#Snooty}

Me likey.
Hmm..cover is cool.
Nice segue:  Wind Cries Mary to this.
Do i detect a 'space' theme going on here? Abit of 'Jane' from jefferson starship would go down well, or 'stairway to the stars' from blue oyster cult, or 'stars die' from porcupine tree

back to a 6.
I'm odd man out here. This one sucks. Talk about insipid!
I am tripping here, it is 1975 and I am 15 years old smoking weed.

That's Great (and new to me)!
Album good...?

PS
...avarage rating!!


Awesome Artwork...wonder if I'll like the music...
MMmmmm Tribal Radiohead {#Tongue}

thank you for playing amazing music like this!!
very nice to listen to..calming
It's A Beautiful Day + Sonic Youth

North Shore. Friday Night. Star-filled sky. BIG fire. BIGGER waves. Trippin to the sound of the surf and Kan'Nal... absolute BLISS!
And now you follow-on with the Waimanalo Blues — that's it, this day is shot — I'm slipping back in time... THANKS BILL!{#Meditate}
I've got the Nag Champa and red wine goin—this song fits perfectly {#Cool}
Hell yeah, and that's why it's great. These guys are fabulous in concert, and the hot women in outrageous costumes spinning fire don't hurt, either.
This song is packed so full of hippie-ness that now my speakers are emitting incense and patchouli scents.

I don't know what's worse - the insipid lyrics, or the inane "ha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la" repeating over and over.  At least both match the awful album art in level of suckitude.

I can't give it negative 20 points, so I'll settle for a 1.
{#Headache} My headache just got a lot worse. Think I'm gonna have to 1 it.

However: "taking a piss" derives from "taking out your pistola". Are there rules for this shitt?

You could argue that the orthography should change to emphasize the pronunciation rhyming with hiss, miss, etc. On the other hand, I believe Dis as in City of as in the 5th layer of hell and eternal residence of the burning coffins of heretics is pronounced the same, so I suppose either spelling is fine, even with the etymology as a truncation of disrespect.
:cool:

Good enough reason to like them right there. They've got a cool groove goin' on. Is there an avatar for the sound of a water pipe bubbling? c.

and continuing the technical thing, REM stands for Rapid Eye Movement

Perhaps they dream to a good back beat
Doh! Ouch. Moral of this: if you wanna diss it out like a pro, KNOW YOUR BAND NAMES FIRST. rexi wrote:

Quite nice!
My band did a show with them a few years back, and not only are they outstanding players They're a great bunch of guys too. Great band, great people.

another new band for me! My itunes bill is out of hand and it's not even February yet...thanks as always to RP

Wild album art, but kind of lackluster song.

Saw them at the Apogeae festival this summer, they were incredible in concert - of course, it always helps when you know most of the words to most of the songs thanks to RP, and there's a VJ doing the most incredible video streams on a huge Triangle abve the stage. They are natives of Paonia, this timy BFE town in way west Colorado, which is where the festival was. Amazing to hear the local band from tiny town make good, of course i've only ever heard them on RP. But thats the best venue in my book. This song is definitely their worst, a shame to tarnish them for others first impression - check out their upbeat stuff.
Now where's my waterpipe?? a 9 :yes:
This has really grown on me. Love it! Mari, :lol: did you ever get round to answering the phone? neat image!
Absolutely awesome... 3rd or 4th time I've heard this and I can only say thanks RP -- I'da never known. This just blows me away... :clap:

what I read on this page: "blah blah blah. . . " its still a 9 to me

People of Earth! ... Woah, that hippie's starting to kick in ... Dude ... My hands are huge!
Love that Futurama episode. Great cultural reference, kazuma. Interesting song, though for the most part I don't mean that as a compliment. It's like they started with a good seed of an idea, then ran out about a minute and a half in. The music score must read ad lib ad nauseam. Decent, but no better than that.
new to me....and I like it! :yes:
A very very bad The Cure imitation.
Comin' in from the garden, to answer the phone, logged on, Kan'Nal - Space Child, Wow! Bugga the fire, the company, music is it, play on!
:yawn: These lyrics stink.
Very cool number.

Scroll down to my february post :lol: Such stoner music! What's even better is that I would have never known about these guys if it wasn't for RP.

sounds like laid-back Tool.
They're doing a laid back acoustic set at the Boulder Creek Fest this weekend.
This is the wrong album cover - that's the cover for Dreamwalker, which doesn't have this song. Space Child is on their eponymous 2001 album. See ">(click here)https://www.kannal.org/(click here)

I'm hearing a smattering of Luka Bloom in there as well.
Rather cool, totally different -- but a bit as if a meld of Pearl Jam, Rusted Root, Live and I don't know were mixed and poured into a raw-sounding groove... and now Neko and The NPs are coming out of the speakers, doing their thing to the senses always attenuated and stimulated by RP... You never know what you'll hear on here, and that's one of the main thrills! Go, Bill!
Very Interesting/Eclectic Band from Colorado - they were great live!!
you just need to see these guys live. it may sound "hippy dippy" but until you see the whole show, you just won't really get it. download the 10.22.05 cervantes show off of archive.org for a taste.
No, seriously... that album cover is terrible.
Meh...">
Kan'Nal is a Denver-based group -- I first saw them at Earthdance 2005 in Laytonville, CA. They're a wonderful band to see live -- info available at https://www.kannal.org and some of their live sets available for free download at www.archive.org under the Live Music Archives section. :good-vibes:
Another cool song from this group! God, I love the cover art.
cool
Anybody know anything about this band? Nothing listed on AMG. Nice groove, and I rarely comment on album art, but this one is decidedly cool.
I like Space Child by Spirit a thousand times better.
I like it. A little hippy, dippy, but that doesn't bother me. Nice mellow groove.
It is nice to hear a band be willing to actually say something relevant with their lyrics.
Okay, first there was the Connells... who are there guys now?

Not much to this one, is there. But what's there sounds okay.
One of my favorite songs by this great band. :bounce: :bounce:
This tune is going nowhere....slow. :arrowu: :arrowd: :arrow: :arrowl:

I like it! sort of like a 21st century Hawkwind...

LOL! I keep waiting for it to go somewhere. So far, it's just a guy with a guitar babbling to himself. "Ayayayaya..."
