The Montreal-based indie-rock quartet's latest, Sun Leads Me On, released in 2015, could be at least partially responsible for the year's mild winter temperatures. The album kicks off with "Warmest Regards," a suitably seasonable number awash in pastoral flute, ooh-ahh backing vocals and strings that dip and flutter like bluebirds in a Disney cartoon.

Songs recall the likes of Midlake ("I Can't Figure Out What's Going On") and Fleet Foxes (virtually everything else), though the band sounds fully in control of its own talents on the gorgeous "Everybody Wants."
