New “Canaanville” EP & T-Shirt Album

Southeast Engine’s Canaanville is a 4-song appendix EP designed to accompany Canary (Misra; 2011). Both albums are thematically based around Appalachian Ohio during The Great Depression (full downloads/bios for both records included in digital promo below).Canaanville is not, however, B-Sides or outtakes. In fact, it contains some of the band’s most memorable songs of all-time:

  • SINGLE: ”Old Oak Tree” is available here. Please share.
  • T-SHIRT ALBUM: In an effort to experiment with new formats, the band/label are offering up Canaanville both digitally and as a T-Shirt Album. A “T-Shirt Album” means fans will receive a t-shirt along with a digital download of the music, as opposed to a CD or LP.
  • PRE-ORDER T-SHIRT ALBUM: Pre-order T-Shirt Albums here. There are 4 different colors to choose from, yo.
Praise for Southeast Engine’s Canary (Misra; 2011)
  • All Music: ★★★★  “Canary is a true find from a band that’s quietly created one of the most powerful albums of the year.”
  • Paste Magazine: 8.4 “Especially when so many groups are mutating old-time American music into pedestrian pop, Southeast Engine distinguish themselves by gently updating these traditions for the 21st century.”
  • Pitchfork: 7.3 “its attention to detail and local focus make for a singular achievement.”
  • Onion AV Club: B+ “Part wilderness excursion, part history lesson and part revival meeting.”
  • Pop Matters: 8/10 “an album where Southeast Engine brought everything together, never lost control, and never backed off of a hard vision.”
  • NPR – World Cafe: Next: “a historical yet entirely contemporary work.”
  • Blurt: 7/10 “such an engaging band, crafting inspired music such as this, and a lyrical insight as to sweep you up and along with their stories.”
  • American Songwriter: “a grand return to form for the label that helped launch Phosphorescent and Shearwater.”
  • Under the Radar: 7/10 “an album that finally seems to capture the feeling that Southeast Engine has been working toward since they formed.”
  • Magnet Magazine: ”Southeast Engine’s crowning achievement. “
  • No Depression: “sidesteps literary pretension, and is so dense with genuine sentiment and detailed prose throughout the set that it begs for another spin each time it ends.”
  • Ghettoblaster Magazine: 4/5 “even when times seem at their worst, the music is still at its best.”
