Plumtree – Plumtree Predicts The Future
First of all, this 1997 record is not called Predicts the Future; it’s called Plumtree Predicts the Future. This Halifax band saw things coming.
That said, could Plumtree really have foreseen a time when a character they conjured via a mangled, misheard name would inspire a best-selling comic book figure and a major Hollywood film? Maybe.
Plumtree’s second album, Predicts the Future, was recorded in 1997 with Laurence Currie at Idea of East studios in Halifax. Released in 1998, the CD propelled Plumtree onto the covers of weekly magazines, including Canada’s music monthly, Exclaim!, as well as to the No. 1 spot on the national college radio chart, Earshot. Videos for the singles “Scott Pilgrim”, “Go”, and “You Just Don’t Exist” received regular airplay on MuchMusic.
We are very pleased to be reissuing this album on vinyl for the first time ever! Remastered at Lacquer Channel Studio with new artwork from Yorodeo and liner notes by Vish Knanna.
