“It is finally here and we couldn’t be more proud. Made for everyone living within Detroit and its surrounding populous comes This Cursed House, the debut LP from seven southern Michiganders with an obviously envious eye to the north. Recorded in the dark of winter on a soundboard originally built and used in the early ‘80s to mix the second and third installments of the Star Wars trilogy, comes an unexpectedly warm record of art-folk arrangements featuring dual cellists, melodica, shout & response vocals, glockenspiel and rhodes piano. 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… it’s the scene you should’ve been hearing from all along.”—Quite Scientific Records
