'Canaris' is Chris Brokaw's fourth solo album, originally released in the fall of 2008 by Capitan Records, reissued in 2017 by Pittsburgh's Omentum Records. Largely an acoustic release, the album was recorded by Aaron Mullan at Sonic Youth's Echo Canyon studio in Hoboken, NJ (tracks 1-3), and Adam Taylor at Paul Kolderie and Sean Slade's Camp Street studio (formerly Fort Apache Studios) in Cambridge, MA (tracks 4-6). All its songs are Brokaw's compositions, with the exception of a cover of Drink the Poetry of the Celtic Disciple, written and originally performed by French black metal band Vlad Tepes

"a brief but wonderful exploration of the acoustic and electric, blues-traditional and experimental byways Brokaw and his guitar have traveled." - Blurt.

"'Canaris' fills a satisfying gap that falls somewhere in-between the comatose blackout of Sunn O))) and the genteel psychedelic folk of Hush Arbors" - Prefix
