Is there such a genre as Canadiana? Like the Canadian version of Americana? If there was than I think Banded Stilts would be the perfect example. What can get more “roots” sounding than a song about forests? The following comes off their upcoming July 15th EP release By The Back Stair . It’s a warm and inviting track that also serves as the opening track for the EP. What I like most about the track is that it’s an acoustic track with what seems like simple instrumentation but when you listen carefully, you can hear the build-up and thought put into each element. It’s not just some simple track over an ever repeating guitar.
