In recent years, the indie-rock pantheon has surged with maple leaf-laden entries, such as Montreal's Plants and Animals. The band was formed by Nova Scotians Warren C. Spicer and Matthew "Woodman" Woodley, who started playing together way back in high school. P&As first full-length album, Parc Avenue (2008), showcases a 70s-inflected pop-rock sound stamped with orchestral swells that earned the band Juno nominations (Canada's Grammy equivalent) for Best Alternative Album and Best New Group.
