Wolf Parade: At Mount Zoomer

Posted by Scott

When I was in Toronto I had the good fortune to hear an advance copy of Montreal-based indie outfit Wolf Parade’s forthcoming album, At Mount Zoomer (due out June 17th). Suffices to say, I was very impressed; this will surely be one of my favorite albums of 2008. The track below is a stand-out on the album, but still just the tip of the iceberg. And yes, the cover looks like a 3rd grade class project gone awry, but the colors bring it together and make it somewhat bearable and after all, this is the standard visually ironic fare I would expect from a release like this. As we learned the other day, sometimes a bad album cover can mean great things are hiding on the inside.

Joshua –

I know the singer Spencer Krug is in a few bands like Frog Eyes, Sunset Rubdown, and Swan Lake but i think Dan Boeckner is in the Handsome Furs and also on a few things with Subtle.

This song reminds me of hard sour candy that the band interpol would make if they were to be candy makers.
