They say:


woodpigeon, led by Calgary musician/journalist Mark Hamilton, creates lush, romantic music that combines bright, delicious pop with gorgeous echoey harmonies and oddball orchestrations including some lovely guitar, banjo, shambling drums, a glockenspiel, piano, melodica and horns. But, it’s not nearly as unbearablly twee as you might imagine. Comparisons with Belle and Sebastian are fair, but with less Little Lord Fauntelroy and more of W.O Mitchell’s dark innocence. With tracks like ‘home as a romanticized concept were everyone loves you always and forever’, and ‘a sad country ballad for a tired superhero’, it’s like you’re listening to a prarie city’s inner monologues. 4/5 — MARY SASANO
