Ben Koehler Every album by The Wilderness of Manitoba is different, and I love that about them. The airy vocals and harmonies paired with the instrumentation in this album have come together to create a warmer, brighter feeling than previous releases. In all, it's another brilliant release by a very interesting group. Favorite track: White Woods.

about

When it came time to record Island of Echoes, the decision was made to record the basic tracks and mix at Revolution Recording, a throwback to the original great Toronto studios of the sixties and seventies. Intent on capturing the band’s evolving live sound, the band says they got the best of both worlds, “We have never made a studio album until now and I think you can especially hear it in the percussion as well as the overall mixes. We still had the necessary time and space to alter and experiment with overdubs at the house for a month, but the backbone of the tracks has a much fuller studio presence than any of our earlier recordings.”
