Published Jan 12, 2010Following the release of their beloved 2008 debut, Parc Avenue, Montreal indie pop trio Plants and Animals have been taking it easy for the last two years. Now, it looks as if that will change, as the band have finally announced the details for their second full-length.
The record is called La La Land, and will be out this spring. The album was recorded in both Montreal and Paris to give it both the French-Canadian and straight-up French influence. According to a press release, the album "is louder, and tougher, but also showcases them at their smoothest and most cohesive to-date. Inspired by a rediscovery of electric guitars, amplification and fuzz pedals, it takes us up and away from Parc Avenue's Montreal-in-the-summer vibe, and out into the rock'n'roll ether."
La La Land is due in stores on April 20 via Secret City. If you can't wait that long, the track "Tom Cruz" can be heard here.
