album::Plants and Animals debut full length Parc Avenue

Originally known for an acoustic, instrumental roots sound following a self-titled recording in 2005, Plants and Animals full-length debut, Parc Avenue, reveals their impressive growth into an epic-rock-pop-soul train that rivals anything crawling out of Canada today. The eleven-song opus weaves in and out of anthems and ballads, at times making grand gestures, but mostly nodding at real-life moments encountered during the album’s conception. From friends’ weddings and sewing buttons, to dungeon-like jam spaces and Portuguese soccer fans taking over Mile End in Montreal, “Parc Avenue” is ultimately a love-letter to their Montreal neighborhood, friends and lovers that inspired it. Recorded entirely to analog tape at the Treatment Room and Studio Carillon Tropical (Spicer’s apartment), “Parc Avenue” is filled with everything from classic seventies guitar tones, intricately orchestrated pop, and dirty, epic post-rock.
