Treasury Library Canada/Houndstooth Europa (Boompa)

Woodpigeon's second album is finally widely available. Formerly sold at the Calgary band's live shows, it's now been re-issued with a bonus 10-track CD. After releasing Songbook in 2006 about living overseas, Treasury is supposed to chronicle singer/guitarist Mark Andrew's return to Canada, but the album sounds more like America---the 1970s folk-rock band that is, not the country. From the near-classical strings on "I Live a lot of Places" to the cascading vocals and keyboards scattered throughout, the album is whimsical and diverse. This is a big old band that creates big sounds in perfect little indie-pop songs.
