Pessimists might claim that “everything’s been done” in music, but don’t tell that to Royal Canoe. They’re full of fresh ideas. In anticipation of their latest album, Something Got Lost Between Here and the Orbit, the group arranged to do musical “house calls” for fans in their hometown of Winnipeg, Man. Hitting 20 homes in one night, the guys hopped on their bikes and hand-delivered copies of their new album, taking just enough time to listen to the first track with their groupies before heading off to the next party. Something is bursting with artful pop influenced by hip-hop, jazz and R&B. Royal Canoe hit the stage on Sunday, October 30, at the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington, with support from How Sad and Ricky Eat Acid.
