It's nice to talk about good Winnipeg music for once, as I was telling some friends recently after a lengthy conversation on the latest buzz from the scene there. Royal Canoe is one of these bands we discussed at length, as we watched this new video shot at Privateer Studio last month in Winnipeg. The slow buildup leading to the thundering finale makes this one of Matt Peters and co.'s finest yet. Good luck at CMW and SXSW guys!

Like John and Yoko, creative musical duos feed off eachother to elaborate concepts. In this case, my friend Sinjin Hawke and his girlfriend Zora Jones hit a serious note with this new free download of a track called Sparklers. Enjoy, seriously. Juke me all night baby.

Royal Canoe embodies what I would consider an all-star team of Winnipeg's most creative indie, rock and pop musicians. Composed of members of The Liptonians, Tele and The Waking Eyes, the band released its debut record Co Op Mode last summer.
Check out their latest single bellow, a laid back and groovy track - Today We're Believers.
