iTunes Review

Canada's Royal Canoe gained considerable critical ground by releasing several EPs before its debut album, Today We’re Believers. Here, the six-piece group from Winnipeg, Manitoba, breaks out the samplers and, one assumes, some conventional instruments to create a mix designed to be heard on headphones or at gatherings, where the sounds take on a supernatural quality. The falsettos guiding “Today We’re Believers,” “Hold on to the Metal," and “Exodus of the Year” match the keyboard lines, which give way to curious stretches of ambient sound that somehow hold things together. “Bathtubs,” with its ensemble vocals, chiming keyboard notes, and tight, nearly danceable beats, demands to be a single. But there’s something about the group’s artistic curiosity and avant-garde quality that suggests Royal Canoe intends this music to be heard as one long chess match in sound.

Customer Reviews

Very Excited

Very cool first album release here in the states. If this is what to expect from this group of talented musicians, then I look forward to f0llowing their carreers. It nice to hear brand new, fresh, not over produced or auto-tuned to the fu_k degree. Sweet, keep the music coming and I will spread the word. WORD!

Opening band discovery...

for years i've hoped the "opening band" would be good at whatever concert i was attending. finally, on august 30 2013, royal canoe opened for alt-j at the fox in oakland and those hopes became reality. (when i got home i went on itunes to find their album and it led me to We Are the City another great canadian band.) even though there are very few truly original bands this one does very well by it's influences.

Amazing sounds

I've been waiting for this record. Glad it's finally here. Buy it if you enjoy a fresh and unique, funky and creative sound. I'm falling for these guys!
