woodpigeon Songbook (CD, £8.25)label: End of the Road Records
Group whistling, tambourine, handclapping, fey longing, winged eyeliner and corduroy blazers conspired to create music that was as glittery and piquantly morose as fresh snow on sidewalks under a full moon. Woodpigeon are a group of Calgarians (home to the 1988 Winter Olympics, remember?) playing Mark Andrew Hamilton's episodic orchestral pop concoctions. Woodpigeon has performed alongside the likes of Grizzly Bear, Broken Social Scene, Calexico, Iron & Wine, Basia Bulat and Julie Doiron amongst others.
