We were originally introduced to Woodpigeon by Mrs Mackerel and their excellent album Treasury Library Canada. Since then we’ve enjoyed the band’s beautifully constructed folk musings on regular occasions.
They are back with a new album (their third) Die Stadt Muzikanten and it is released tomorrow in the UK on End of the Road Records. It is chock full of gorgeous strings and harmonies, of sprawling vignettes and its fair share of folk stomp-a-thons. Not only that, but a wonderful chamber-pop collaboration with MM faves Eagleowl is another highlight on this exceptionally good album. Taster Empty-Hall-Sing-Along is typical of what you can expect.
Order the album here.
