Royal Canoe

Royal Canoe’s first proper LP finally gives listeners an opportunity to answer the question, What can these guys do with a full-length record? The answer is, well, quite a lot. Today We’re Believers is a 12-track affair running the gamut from shimmering, summery indie pop (“Exodus of the Year”) to heavily-syncopated, contemporary hip hop-influenced jams (“Button Fumbla”) and reworked versions of past singles (“Bathtubs”, “Nightcrawlin”). It’s also immaculately produced, thanks in large part to John Paul Peters (Propagandhi). Fans can expect more of Royal Canoe’s variable time signatures and the adept percussion work of Derek Allard and Michael Jordan, while the vocal direction of Matt Peters is remarkably polished. Solid work from this local six piece.
