This review is coming a few months late, but without a good friend I likely would have never heard this.
Plants and Animals are an indie-rock band from Montreal with audible comparisons to My Morning Jacket with twist of Howie Day. In March of this year, Parc Avenue, their first full length album was released in the States. P+A's MMJ and Howie Day compatibilities are never more prominent than on "Good Friends", the second track off Parc Avenue.
Any initial listen may take some time to sink in, but Parc Avenue continues to grow on you. While Parc Avenue has some weaker tracks, as a whole, its a bright star in the promising future of Plants and Animals.
