ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Wilderness of Manitoba had a special year in 2010;
touring Canada including a performance at the Halifax Pop
Explosion, touring the UK twice including a performance at
the End of the Road Festival that garnered them a standing
ovation and receiving a ton of positive press from the print
and online media.

To celebrate, Popguru decided to reissue Hymns
of Love & Spirits with 3 bonus tracks: a track that was
written at the same time as the rest of the album called
Mother Song, a traditional gospel song given the special
Wilderness of Manitoba treatment called Softly and
Tenderly, and a percussive full band arrangement of
Dreamcatchers.

Here are some press quotes from the original release of
Hymns of Love & Spirits:

“Hymns of Love and Spirits is stark and powerful, warmed
with spot on effortlessly controlled four part harmonies.”
Herohill

“Every single one of the tracks is completely and utterly
gorgeous. Whether it’ll be enough to carry Hymns of Love
and Spirits all the way to a Polaris vote or two remains to
be seen, but with so much talent on display here, you’d be
foolish to write The Wilderness of Manitoba off completely.”
I (Heart) Music

“Absolutely stunning. I’m thinking we might have a new
front runner for Best Album of 2009.”
Burgeoning Metropolis

“Every now and then something or someone gets through
the cracks, rises above the general morass and makes you
sit up and take stock, even for just a few minutes. From the
moment I hit play on The Wilderness of Hymns of Love and
Spirits, I knew I was hooked.” The Line of Best Fit

“There’s nothing masking the stark beauty of Hymns of
Love and Spirits, one of the best albums by a Canadian
band this year.” Quick Before It Melts

“Wilderness of Manitoba is cultivating a sound that is pure
Canadiana. It’s a sound that has flown through some of
the finest bands in this great country for decades. There
is no reason why they shouldn’t be playing the best venues
alongside the likes of Neil Young or the Great Lakes
Swimmers.” Too Tired To Fly

“The buzz around local dreamy folk group the Wilderness
of Manitoba continues to build in some pretty likely places,
and it’s easy to see why: their debut EP, Hymns of Love and
Spirits, is an ethereal, reverb-soaked, finger-picking slumber
party with lush harmonies and sad overtones.”
Torontoist
