• “For my money, there’s not been a better chamber folk record than The Wilderness of Manitoba’s 2009 debutHymns of Love and Spirits. While their sound evolved and expanded on subsequent albums, founding member Will Whitwham’s voice always retained the whispery intimacy first displayed on that debut. New single, “Brigden Fair” harkens back to the band’s origins, stripping away excesses and extravagances to reveal the soul of his songwriting. The Wilderness of Manitoba are coming full circle, their new hymns of love and spirits sounding rejuvenated and renewed.”

    “The fourth album from Toronto’s the Wilderness of Manitoba starts to weave its spell from the first track, drawing the listener into its manifold sonic delights. The trio references all kinds of sounds — from taut folk-rock to synth-laden, skyward-directed pop gems.”
    – Winnipeg Free Press

    “If you were familiar with local act the Wilderness of Manitoba from their earlier dreamy folk incarnation, you might be surprised by the group’s latest effort, which makes its more rockist intentions clear right from synth-bolstered lead track Big Skies. The more upbeat sound suits the Wilderness of Manitoba’s evolution.”
