La La Land reveal: Side 2! Album out next week.

Plants and Animals' La La Land is out one week from today, so we figured it was a fitting date to roll out another chunk of the ongoing album reveal. We've put up three new tracks today, considering the fact that anyone who's paying attention has probably already heard "The Mama Papa," the first single and the lead-off track for Side B of the album.

The two tracks that follow came from the band's sessions in France. “Fake It” is the first song the band recorded there, and the drummer’s favourite. It’s not hard to see why. This is one you need to hear on the turn-table, loud. "Celebration" was originally supposed to close the album. Another La Frette offering, it was written almost on the spot with a simple chord progression Warren came up with sitting in the garden outside the studio. “We worked quickly on a structure with Warren playing some soul guitar,” Nic says, “with me on the B3 and Woody on drums. We brought the tape back to Montreal and added a world a fuzz guitars and some horns. Our first plan was to end it with the pretty birds from La Frette singing at the end but instead we crashed a jet on another planet.”
