Thumbtacks and Glue, recorded  in Calgary with producer Arran Fisher and mastered by Ryan Morey, has already received a number of positive reviews, including acclaim for its “great songwriting,” “amazing instrumentals,” and musical “ingenuity.” (In Your Speakers, The Grid TO).

Thumbtacks + Glue, is held together by exquisite harmonies, subtle orchestral-pop arrangements and lyrics about loneliness, digging graves, and “those songs we sing that don’t get heard,”” — Edmonton Journal

 

“Hamilton writes very nice folk rock songs… but he, unlike most of his completion, also wires them with dynamite and blows them sky high.” — Blurt

 

Thumbtacks refuses – if you’ll excuse the pun – to be pigeonholed as orchestral-folk… [It] trades in a delicate beauty that would be easy at this point to take for granted, but incorporates a broader, more electrified sonic palate that’s unafraid to let some edges fray or layers stack upon themselves” — Chromewaves

 

“This, I daresay, is Woodpigeon’s finest moment.” — Quick Before it Melts
