Monday Holiday: Sunparlour Players, Bird and the Bee & Good Old War

Sunparlour Players

The Sunparlour Players started playing live in spring of 2005 after Andrew released the small EP “Mersea”. They then released another small live EP later in 2005. Then they played a lot more. Then in 2007 they released their critically acclaimed “Hymns For The Happy” (Outside Music).

“Wave North” is their new album (Outside Music – available May 19/09). Recorded at Blue Rodeo’s Woodshed Studio and the Fembots Junkshop between Dec 2008 and Feb 2009. Choir and horns were recorded at Toronto’s Factory Theatre. Aided by celebrated producer Jeremy Backofen (Felice Brothers, Frightened Rabbit, Mice Parade) whose cross-pollinated experience with some of the most innovative alternative musicians today gave them a definitive approach to the recording of the album.
