The Lovely Feathers Tour 'Hind Hind Legs'

The Lovely Feathers are Montreal's twisted sons, somewhere between the epic pop of the Arcade Fire and the insular indieness of label mates, Islands. Of course, you must consider the exuberance with which they spew forth their lyrics, continually becoming obsessed with a turn of phrase, or rhyme, and repeating it like a riff on guitar. This band still shows more promise than accomplishment, which is not to denigrate what they have done (there are amazing songs on both releases to date and they are my favourite band out of Montreal), but to simply say that the best is yet to come. They're still touring their latest effort on Equator Records, Hind Hind Legs, and here are the dates currently scheduled:
