"[...] Sufjan's orchestration, Arcade Fire's energy, Broken Social Scene's stage presence and cooperation, My Morning Jacket's pipes [...] Long story short? MUST. SEE. THIS. BAND. LIVE." - I Guess I'm Floating
"The ancient Greeks thought that at night you could hear the music of the universe while staring at the stars. Nobody ever heard that music, but if it existed it would sound very much like this record. Cosmic." - The Deli Magazine, NYC
"Just weird enough to perk yr ears, but full of the kind of honey-sweet vocals you'd love to drizzle all over your lover's naked body before delicately licking it off inch by luscious inch." - yvynyl
(different folks hear different things)
Royal Canoe is a band, armed with falsettos, guitars, effects pedals, drums, basses, tambourines, shakers and a five-keyboard super-weapon. Royal Canoe play lyrically sharp pop songs that move people and make people move.
Deidre & The Dark
Before expanding her moniker, Deidre released her debut EP "Curious Parcel." Like a femme fatale who gets distracted and falls in love, it's filled with vulnerability, pleasure, suspicion, and tragedy. Mixing sounds of the blues, gypsies, surf safaris, 60s a-go-go and more, she melds numerous influences into songs of love and horror - a totally new sound for the singer who also performs in Brooklyn bands Savoir Adore and French Horn Rebellion.
Curating and hosting conceptual parties at various venues in Brooklyn over the last year, Deidre began to harness her storytelling skills and style. She and her husband, producer David Perlick-Molinari (French Horn Rebellion, MGMT's Time To Pretend), have started to capture and define that energy in these first few recordings, with much more to come.
