Dreamy melodies and psychedelic summer vibes take you somewhere warm and far away. 

A windigo, by definition, is a spine-chilling monster of the flesh-eating cannibal variety. Whereas the scariest thing about the Calgary version of Windigo is how seamlessly they shapeshift between indie-rock, psychedelia, jazz, funk and grunge. Their live shows have been called “ruthlessly entertaining.” A single Windigo tune can cover a lot of ground: crisp guitar lines that punch staccato holes through liquid soundscapes, anthemic passages that drop away to near-silence and musical left turns where you thought they were going to veer right. Their songs are arranged to make room and leave space for each member’s talents to shine. Windigo is a four-headed colossus, calculated in its determination to leave no stone unturned in the search to satisfy a ravenous appetite for creativity. - Calgary Folk Fest.

Select Press clippings:

“Windigo’s internal changes seem to have coalesced their sound into deeply congenial and gratifying territory, where each member cultivates the space to showcase what they can do. -Beatroute (Jan 11, 2016).

“Forget about common structures or any cliché to define this work easily....You may feel, at some parts, as in the middle of a spiritual orgy between Beck, The Cranberries, The Beatles and Pink Floyd, but at the very beginning of the LP you have to admit that you never have heard something like this before. The diversity of their styles, tones and intentions, match beautifully, with distorted guitars that contrast the melodic soft voices. A deep bass that makes you float into the beat of a drum that jumps from jazz to funk, from rock to grunge and beyond.” -Carlos Salazar ­ “Windigo – Windigo” Review ­ Beatroute (Jan 11, 2016).

“Calgary’s Windigo were a force to be reckoned with on Saturday night. Blending elements of rock and psychedelia, few bands rivaled the pure sonic force of Windigo’s performance. An integral part of Calgary’s indie rock revival, Windigo were ruthlessly entertaining.” -Jarrett Edmund ­ “Photo Recap: SoundOff Festival” ­ The Gauntlet
