The Montreal singer/songwriter and eponymous band, who won the 2007 Polaris Music Prize, playfully employ unusual objects and experimental techniques in relatively accessible folk rock songs. On their new album, Adventures In Your Own Backyard, they pull back on some of the instrumental weirdness but still bring a quirky and original sensibility to their songwriting.
