Scared the crap out of me when it first came on, but I'm digging it!

Hey RP. Stop exposing us to new music from other cultures that we wouldn't otherwise come into contact with. It's very destabilizing for those of us who thought our teenage/college record collections were the very center of the musical universe
 

I very nearly had a coffee-keyboard moment after reading this comment 
Yay, this was one of my submissions! I see it was originally turned down, but glad someone changed their mind!

Now maybe you could take a second look at Whitehorse's Kicking Down Your Door, please?

7 ---> 8 
Keeps getting better. Lots of energy. Where else would you hear this besides Nunavut?
You know I was just in Africa

Are you that weak? I'd rather like to think that that was intended to be a joke.

Indie-rock Inuit music. This is one of my favorite tracks I've ever found through RP. Thank you, newbolddrive and Bill! 
Is this the second time this song has been played in two days? In my view, that is not often enough.
I usually listen between 7AM and noon.  And sometimes after 7PM.   This might be useful info for when to NOT program this song for airplay.  I love RP.  I don't love Ukiug.  
I'm having hard time to define my feeling about this song. Some parts of it are a strong 1 rating while the rest is a neat 10. And while i pushed very hard the 1 button by listening to the first 2 minutes, after hearing the whole thing, i removed my 1. But I have no idea where to put my score now i want to hit 1 and 10 at the same time. 
I always increase the volume on this one

Bill meant to say, “ ... from the far northern Canadian Territory [not province] of Nunavut. All the same - thanks for playing this fine track.

That it appears so is in big part because they're hindered by having to transliterate into English.  If they were written in the actual Inuktitut language you could see the beauty of their  syllables.   They have an art in their form that's totally lost when crushed into latin alphabet. 
All I hear is the bass line from "Bella Lugosi's Dead"
Beyond that, this is not so good.
... and the mandatory PF reference - several species of small furry animals in a cave and grooving with an Inuit...!
“This would have been better without the filler Millennial swoop in the middle. Where did that "woah oh oh oh oh" stuff come from?” I am really glad someone else has noticed this and also glad you named it. I like this song despite it though.

I suspect Inuit might say that English sounds like someone took Latin, German and Norse and threw them into a blender.

Inuit grammar
is pretty cool, for those who are interested...
Bill, Nunavut is a Territory, Not a Province.
Just saying.
Nunavut isn't a province, it's a territory.

Mais un peut disrespectful of the few of us who like "Canadian" spelled with a capital "C", you know, like when you also add a capital after a period. But you're in a hurry, I know.
That kid can sing!
Nice to hear some indigenous music on RP.  How's about a little Kashtin?

Good one, newbolddrive! Thanks for helping broaden our collective musical landscape and thanks to BnR for adding it to the mix. LLRP!!

Absolutely nailed it. 
Thanks for playing this Bill, but I gotta say Nunavut is a territory, not a province.

Reminds me of some of Ursula Dudziak's vocal work.

It's traditional Inuit throat singing from Northern Canada.
YAY! This was my submission! 

Thanks RP!

I didn't rate it 1 (I didn't rate it at all) but I'll tell you what I hate about it. There's this one voice just making this sort of "EEE EEE EEE EEE EEE" sound in the chorus that is a bit of a fly in the ointment for me. I like the rest of the tune, but I just want that one voice to shut up and quit ruining the song.
ok, I was really liking this until th3 idiotic 'woa oh oh wao oh oh" shit came in.
Thank you Bill!!! As a Manitoban huge respect and thanks for playing these guys. They are so good and could use any exposure they can get.
So glad this is in rotation!  And then to somehow segue seamlessly to Tears for Fears.    RP is a treasure.  Time to ante up my donation and get back on the proper side of BillG's ledger.

I'm kinda digging this, not quite to the Matias Duplesey level of liking (yet?) though it's got something enjoyable to me...call it a 7 for now....Long Live RP and these eclectic playlists I've grown to really enjoy!!
 
I bumped this funkiness to an 8....I love how this tune keeps going throughout the entire duration....LLRP!!

Glad you gave it a rip.
Right on Bill! So glad you decided to play this.

Also check out "Fall Away" by an older 70's Inuit band, Sugluk. 
always great to hear something different.

Wow, nice to hear some Canadian Indigenous content on RP! I'm from Halifax, NS where this group's violinist is from, and in fact I'm familiar with the other band she's part of, Gypsophilia (another group to look into, Bill?)

I was initially surprised to hear the throat singing at the beginning of the song, which prompted me to look at the Wikipedia info :)

The left-right throat singing near the end has a wild effect wearing the old ear-buds...
Okay, wow.
