Friends in Bellwoods II

Friends in Bellwoods is a compilation album, released in 2009 by Out of This Spark as a benefit for Toronto's Daily Bread Food Bank. The album is a sequel to the 2007 compilation Friends in Bellwoods.[1]

Where the original album was, in part, a celebration of the scene and community that had emerged around the Trinity-Bellwoods home of Ohbijou's Casey Mecija,[2] Bellwoods II marked an ending, as its recording and release coincided with Mecija learning that she would have to move out of the house due to a toxic mold infestation.[1] Early coverage of the album's release also noted that where the original album had documented an emerging scene of artists who were largely unknown outside Toronto, by the time of the second album's release several of the involved artists — including Ohbijou, The Acorn, The Rural Alberta Advantage, Timber Timbre, Basia Bulat and Great Lake Swimmers — had broken out to significant national or international success.[1]
