I Live a Lot of Places


What an unexpected surprise...and a good one :) very 1970s soCal folk feeling to me...with some Canuck thrown in. I wonder if they tour. Also reminds me of Sufjan.

Ninja Love


There's not a track on this album I don't love, the lyrics are fun and the sound is smooth. I'd recommend it highly.

It Grows...


This one took a little while to grow on me, but I have to say that it's fantastic. I think the reason it took awhile to grow is because someone wrote a review comparing this band to Fleet Foxes, who I enjoy. So while I was expecting that similar sound, I was presented with something different that reminds me more of Margot & the Nuclear So and So's. After listening to it more and more, I really enjoy it, so now I'm going to purchase their two-album set. This one's free, so get it while you can. One question though...is someone taking a shit at the beginning of track 3?

Download NOW


This is why eMusic ROCKS. This Calgary band is up there with the Decemberists -- no, they're better -- for producing beautiful, melodic, slightly twisted folk pop with a dark, woodsy texture. The instrumentation is amazing and hard to describe -- gently picked guitar and mandolin, occasionally electric, joined here and there by fiddle, tuba, a pulsing drum machine -- all kinds of unexpected stuff popping up throughout, and it all works without seeming the least bit precious or overarranged. Gorgeous harmonies, too. All their albums are great, and in a better world they would already be a massive success. Download the free EP first, then get all the rest. This is hands down the best band I've discovered here since Frightened Rabbit. Thanks eMusic!!!

Great EP


This is a terrific EP of beautifully arranged freak folk (that's as close as you're going to get) from this Calgary-based band. The fact that it's free makes 'em sound even better! Give it a download, you have nothing to lose but some storage space on your hard drive.

This Is Why I'm in eMusic!


I'd never heard of this band before the free download of this, which I presume is an EP. What a great discovery! If you like Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens, and the like, you'll love this download - it's really fine - what should I call it - freak folk, I guess. The arrangements are captivating and the close harmony is sublime. This made me seek out their new full-length, "Songbook". Check 'em out - what have you got to lose?
