Sunparlour Players - Hymns for the Happy

The 2007 re-release of the highly acclaimed debut release from Sunparlour Players.

"One of the ways Sunparlour Players succeeds on the new record is the band's intense creativity. This is heard in juxtapositions between the rawkus stomp and yowls found on John Had a Bell and a Whistle and the elegiac orchestrations and vocals of If the Creeks Don't Rise. The Players seem to be constantly evolving as their history comes from equal parts old country and old punk." - Ottawa XPress

"The Mennonite upbringing of main-man Andrew Penner may have piqued press interest, but it is his eloquent lyrics and passionate vocals and the group's fiery onstage energy that will keep you riveted." - Exclaim!
