Royal Canoe getting some shut eye before heading out on tour (Valentin Mittelstet)
Winnipeg's Royal Canoe is hitting the road in support of a new digital 7",
"Purple and Gold". And with tour dates going from Victoria to Los
Angeles to New York with lots of stops in between, SCENE checked in to
see what the band had loaded onto their iPod for those long, long
"Pink Matter" by Frank Ocean
Great vibe. Amazing groove in Andre 3000's rap.
"Hot Knife" by Fiona Apple
Amazing vocal stacks. Fiona's voice is in top form. Just came out and already a classic.
"Sun in Your Eyes" by Grizzly Bear
Christopher Bear's drumming. Always energizes their music. Another great record by the Grizz.
"Street Talkin'" by Slick Rick
A master class in talk-singing.
"Wonderful World" by Lost Lander
Doing some West Coast dates with them. Really digging this
