Plants and Animals

Unexpectedly, Montreal's Plants and Animals released one of my new favorite records this year. Employing what superficially sounds like shoegaze mixed with acoustic ballads and a hint 90s garage--brief bouts with horns but for the most part straight guitar rock--the band manages to remain conscious of the pleasure in simple rock chords. In light of this, however, experimentation all across the board reel in the three piece's unique charm. Instrumental sections that haphazardly draw from atmospheric seaward marches, harmony filled vocal drapes and every imaginable guitar texture add a touch of insanity to already immensely solid songwriting. Their live show is incredible too, featuring astonishing finesse and power. Listen to this band immediately.
