Plants and Animals Return!

img-plants-and-animals_113615648555Man I used to really be into Canadian group Plants and Animals several years ago and I honestly wasn’t sure if the band was still making music or not. You can likely now imagine my excitement when I just got word today that the band is making a return after a long 4 year absence. A brand new album is planned for release in the Spring featuring this awesome new single “No Worries Gonna Find Us”. It’s a stunning, driving pop song with a catchy hook and a nice beat keeping your head nodding throughout. Dig.

Waltzed in From the Rumblingis due out on April 28th via Secret City Records.

Show Preview: Plants and Animals @ Lamberts (5/25)

Date Friday, May 25th
Location Lamberts
Doors 1000 pm
Tickets $10 from C3

With all the incredible shows in town on Friday evening, we wanted to make sure you were aware of all our favorite acts, so we got one more great suggestion for you, Plants and Animals.  The Canadian group will be making their way into town to play at Lamberts to support the release of their recent record, The End of That. In my mind, they’ve got this real classic indie rock song, but as the group’s evolved they seem to have taken on the personality of a rocking M. Ward–an interesting twist.  Opening the evening will be Papermoons, so show up early, and don’t talk ’til the band’s off the stage.

Those Glasgow boys from Frightened Rabbit are stopping in town at Stubbs this Wednesday evening.  Joining the Scots on stage are solid openers Plants & Animals and Bad Veins.  For only $15, that’s a pretty awesome lineup for a pretty low price.  I say spend the cash and make it out.
