Hello friends! The blog is on indefinite hiatus. Thanks for the love and support!
I stumbled across Toronto-based Folk Rock band The Wilderness of Manitoba a few years ago when seeking out some new folk music with a pop/rock edge. I have been continually impressed with the darker, wandering, mysterious, and driving brand of folk that has been coming out of Canada as of late. The Wilderness of Manitoba's music is hook-filled, lush with harmonies, and does an excellent job of pairing more traditional folk elements with a modern pop/rock feel.
