Hello Slowcoustic readers!Â I wanted to post today to advise of a fairly recent update to my blogging […]
So I thought I would post on some great summer sounds that I just picked up from a band that I ironically enough, don’t know enough about.Â The band is Woodpigeon who just so happen to be from the very city I currently live in!Â I KNOW.Â I had heard of them prior to listening to them for the first time a few months back, but I didn’t follow through and really listen enough.Â Possibly it is often the fact that I listen to soo much music, something good can get lost in the shuffle, which is a heinous thing in my books.Â I will attempt to be much more diligent in such things for the future, I promise this much to you all.
So where am I going with all of this,Â Woodpigeon’s new album “Treasury Library Canada” is currently available from their website here, so make sure you seriously consider purchasing it. Â Also look over their full website as they release stuff all the time and there is a lot of info on tours, videos and such.Â Woodpigeon in my vision are an “indie-pop-mellow-troupe”, so they do lean to the Slowcoustic genre, but don’t quite cross the line completely.Â They can deliver a heartbreaking song then bring you back to a light pop style track that relieves any possible despair they may have caused you.Â They also traditionally include a few song titles that get interestingly long titles (a la Sufjan Stevens), but they come by it honestly I believe.Â Check out a few of their previous albums and tell me I am incorrect!
I have two samples from the new album and both are below.Â I believe they are going to be great for my summer.Â “How do I know this?” you ask.Â I simply found myself cruising around today here in Calgary (oh, did I mention that Woodpigeon are from Calgary?) in some very nice 32 degree weather (that is 90 degrees Fahrenheit to the non-metric crowd) and enjoying the delicious sounds of Woodpigeon’s gaggle of a band (I believe they are at 7 members with at least the same amount of “contributors” at the moment!).
