New Music Update 2 - The Courier News

Saturday, May 15th, 2010

Check out the music of Courier News on CBC Radio Three

Check out the music of Courier News on CBC Radio Three

Who would have thought a vocoder could sound so sweet? The Courier News of Winnipeg, that’s who.

The Courier News have just released a new E.P. called “Fictures” and it is certainly worth a listen.  This E.P. is a great example of a functional and balanced collaboration which is much easier said than done.

The smokey sweet vocals of Alexa Dirks combine with the Postal Service-esque vocals of Matt Schellenberg over a complex soundscape of familiar indie elements. Throughout the music of the Courier News, the acoustic guitar and piano are accented with digital quirkiness of drum loops and the vocoder.

Click here to check out their track Empty Clouds.

Currently there are no tour dates for the Courier News but keep up to date with their website by clicking here.
