Along with all of the beautiful sights and sounds of Spring in Vancouver, The Pugs and Crows are adding a series of exciting shows in and around BC and a brand new sophomore album to the mix.
Vancouver’s award-winning five-piece is set to release their second album, Fantastic Pictures, on June 14th, 2012. Limited edition signed vinyl and download cards will be available for purchase online at www.pugsandcrows.com or at any one of the band’s upcoming concerts. This album, recorded and engineered by Sheldon Zaharko at The Factory Studios and produced by the one and only Chris Gestrin, is sure to turn some heads. Its eclectic mix of both indie rock and modern jazz sounds stays true to the band’s well-loved cinematic soundscape, while layering in new, bolder sounds and unique sonic textures.
