Montreal's Secret City Records have about as solid of a track record as a label could ever hope for. With only four artists on their label to date, they already boast one Polaris Music Prize winner (Patrick Watson), a fellow 2007 nominee (Miracle Fortress), and international sensations the Go! Team. So it's not surprising that when the ladies and gentlemen at Secret City start talking about their newest addition, basically everyone in the independent music scene listens.
The new guys are Montreal's Plants and Animals, whose first full-length on the label was released yesterday. The album, described as "an epic-rock-pop-soul train", is a very solid addition to the label's already impressive discography. And lucky for all of you kids, we've got a couple to give away!
Thanks to the nice folks at Secret City, we've got two copies of the new album, Parc Avenue to the first two people who can correctly tell us "what does the woman's t-shirt say on the cover of Parc Avenue?" Act now, and you'll also receive a copy of Plants and Animals' 2007 EP, with/avec. That's pretty damn sweet.
Email us your answer with "I love both Plants and Animals" in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your full contact info, including mailing address.
The band plays tomorrow night, February 28th at Zaphod's in Ottawa, and as part of Chart Magazine's Canadian Music Week showcase, March 6th at the Horseshoe in Toronto. There are also rumours about an in-store at Criminal Records the following day. Keep an eye on their website for this announcement, as well as full tour dates.
