So, the new Wolf Parade album is out. It's called At Mount Zoomer, and it is five stacks of awesome with maple kick-ass poured over it.
For those of you who don't know Wold Parade, they are a great band from Montreal, where incredible Canadian bands go to make it big, apparently. The odd thing is that pretty much every member is originally from BC.
Anyway, their 2005 album Apologies to the Queen Mary has been on my playlist since it came out. I think it (along with Arcade Fire's Neon Bible and Metric's two albums) is one of the best Canadian rock albums of the last decade or so. So pick up either of Wolf Parade's albums and give a listen. They are great.
