The group just released its second LP, La La Land, in April, and the album’s balance of mellowness and electric fuzz is the perfect companion to Frightened Rabbit’s whisky-soaked Scottish blues. Plants and Animals’ first LP, Parc Avenue, was shortlisted for the 2008 Polaris Music Prize and nominated for two Juno Awards in 2009. (And speaking of Juno, they share a hometown — Halifax, Nova Scotia — with Ellen Page.) For a sample of the band’s sound, check out the song “The Mama Papa” (MP3).
