Episode Summary

Plants and Animals
This song brightened last year's grey days. It starts like a flood, hardly letting the piano part settle in before launching a powerful drumbeat and a chorus yelling the « Bye Bye Bye »s. It's like a throwback to a new Summer of Love : long hair, naked torsoes, and joints hanging from lips. You imagine a commune of sorts, a monstrous formation, before you realize that Plants and Animals is only three people. And that's just it-how can only three people, with a guitar, a tambourine and an autoharp, perform « Bye Bye Bye » ? Réal : Nat Tourné à Paris Réal : Nat Tourné à Paris Quicktime ipod Voila. That turned out so well. Because-just like in their studio version-the force of this song isn't so much in its instrumental armada as it is in the conviction and the power that Warren C. Spicer puts in his song. Shortly after filming the Quebecois from Karkwa, Nat returned to the La Frette studios to met up with the three members of Plants and Animals, who were recording their new album. A quiet week in which to work on their excellent new songs, and a band that welcomes the chance to record a few Take-Away Shows like it's a pressure release: the opportunity at once to decompress and to bond with their workplace. Like exhausted kids, the Plants want to have fun with the place that has housed them for nearly a week so far. Rummaging through the studio's closets in search of old, makeshift instruments and old audio accessories of all types, Nic, the drummer, happily settles in the kitchen. Réal : Nat Tourné à Paris Réal : Nat Tourné à Paris Quicktime ipod Up there, in the studio loft, there are the artists' rooms and an old piano, not quite in tune. The occasion to do a sweet song that sounds like a goodbye. A child's lullaby, before they leave once again for an all-night recording session.
