Wolf Parade

Wolf Parade are a Canadian rock band who I have heard some tracks by recently and enjoyed. I like that jaunty, putting-on-silly-and-slightly-unhinged-voices style of singing with the usual borderline-generic indie sound.

Is that a beard or a scarf

They’re a fun band. I don’t know much more about them than that and that I’ve enjoyed the tracks I’ve listened to recently. I’m not good at this ‘exhaustively explaining a band and forcing you to listen to them’ thing, ok?

If you like Wolf Parade then post here and tell me more about them.

Here are a couple of the tracks I like:

Dear Sons and Daughters of Hungry Ghosts

Shine a Light

  1. Heh, they are a very good band. Here’s some info for you…

    There are two lead singers Spencer Krug (Dear Sons and Daughters…) and Dan Boeckner (Shine a Light) that tend to share the main songwriting duties. They also are involved with lots of other side projects, Spencer has Sunset Rubdown, Frog Eyes and Swan Lake, Dan has Handsome Furs, who all play a similar field of off-kilter indie-rock and all can be linked sonically in some way back to Wolf Parade.

    Both Wolf Parade and Sunset Rubdown will release new albums sometime this year, with Handsome Furs, Swan Lake and Frog Eyes all having released albums not too long ago. Ergo, they are all musical workaholics and yet the quality seems to be consistently pretty damn good.

    I was gonna do an article on a whole musical family tree (because it does get pretty large, almost as large as Broken Social Scene’s) but you’ve ruined my plans! Ahh well…

  2. I ain’t ruined no plans! You’re just looking for an excuse not to do it!

    Riley pretty much summed it up. These guys are one of my favs out there, Spencer in particular is a true musical savant. Check out his Daytrotter session recording with his Sunset Rubdown project. “Random Spirit Lover”, Rubdowns third album drops sometime in October. Can’t wait for the Wolf Parade follow up. I wrote a little Wolf Parade situation last week on my blog(www.nadirt.blogspot.com) here:
