Format: Audio CD
"We're Plants and Animals `cause we make music that's honest like a dog drinking water or a tree falling on a car and we do it with nothing but two guitars and a drum kit so we're not trying to fool anyone." - Warren Spicer.

Canadian indie rockers Plants and Animals dropped their second full length this spring (4/20), titled La La Land. Self-described as post-classic rock, described by The Montreal Mirror as a "folk-jazz-digital-improv trio," the sound Plants and Animals bring on La La Land evokes the spacey acid deserts of the Meat Puppets, and some of the more lyric/melodic moments in the Modest Mouse/Cymbals Eat Guitars vein. Think Fleet Foxes, but weirder. There is an air of the exotic, as on "Kon Tiki," and the American Southwest creeps in on some guitar leads that leave you feeling like you're standing on the floor of Monument Valley, as the album cover may hint. Infectious riffing keeps this approaching-ethereality on the ground. Also impressive, this seemingly offhand album flows extremely well (the transition from "Swinging Bells" to "American Idol" is nothing but clutch).

There is something spiritual in the echoing spaces of this album, but if it's church, it's peyote church. Not to say it's all that serious. In reference to the intro track "Tom Cruz," they explain, "It was December, pre-Christmas, so we fuelled the session with rum and cokes. They made us feel like Tom Cruise. It gave us killer smiles and made our enemies wither."

Humor and power, MIDI instruments and analog warmth, La La Land is a delicious study in contradiction.

I'm a big Fan of Plants & Animals and bought this disc for my Bruva. Getting was an ordeal. the wrong item was sent and it took over 6 weeks to get the replacement.

This is one of my favorite albums I own. The Mama Papa was originally my favorite but now I've sort of grown tired of that one and others have stood out. Jeans Jeans Jeans is a great up-tempo song. Tom Cruz would be my next favorite. Also love Kon Tiki among others.

I saw Plants & Animals as one of the opening acts for Frightened Rabbit on 10/27 and I was impressed. Based on that performance, I picked up this disc used on Amazon. Overall, it is pretty good, but I thought that their live sound/performance was better.
