The band known as CANADA has fast become the answer to the stuffy misaligned garage scene that has largely monopolized Detroit's weary image in the minds of the masses. THIS is what music from the mitten is about...and it's the scene you should've been hearing from all along. CANADA is a seven piece musical collective hailing from the Ann Arbor area of Michigan. CANADA was conceived in late 2004 when a group of mild mannered acquaintances who all happened to play various musical machines gathered together in a basement full of rain and chandeliers and began writing. Shortly after, they convened on a farm just outside of Ann Arbor and crafted their songs from the air and from the earth. From these gatherings came the beginnings to what would lead up to This Cursed House. In just over a year since their album was released, CANADA has wrapped up tours with Page France, Saturday Looks Good to Me, David Vandervelde, Headlights, and Margot & The Nuclear So & So's; chosen as one of KEXP's 90.3 bands of 2006, played SXSW and CMJ, and graced the Cover of CMJ Magazine as a #1 Top 200 Add. Their album rised to #13 on the Top 200. Please prepare yourself to feel overly charmed. Imagine a scenario where The Arcade Fire shows up at Sufjan's backwoods cabin with blankets and board games, and you'll likely capture the aura that has surrounded such an incredibly "worth it" band.
