I no being have any reason to write about Wolf Parade but it’s been a fort-year since I’ve written so tough titties!

Another cat here wrote a bit about sophomore* albums–he cuddled up to the new Black Angels record Directions to Seek a Ghost or whatever and took a dump all over the new Tapes ‘n Tapes record. So it’s my turn to cuddle/poop.

Wolf Parade. The new one. It’s good. Which we half expected seeing as how Sunset Rubdown and Handsome Furs both have been releasing good stuff during WP’s hiatus.

The new album is coming out soon, and it’s more than satisfactory. I’m was more keen on Dan’s songs than Spencer’s (though there is nothing better than “I’ll Believe in Anything”) on the last album, and that fact holds true for this album. But it’s still a two-headed beast of a motherfucker that compliments itself (compliments itself? what the hell am I saying?) well.

Suck on it.

Wolf Parade – Soldier’s Grin (removed at label’s request, but buy the album)

Wolf Parade – California Dreamer (removed at label’s request, but buy the album)

Her Space Holiday – I’ll Believe in Anything


Short and sweet: the new Cloudland Canyon album–Lie in Light–is fantastic. Drones, tones, bones, scones.

Look, here’s an album cover!

Anyway, recommended for those like outer space and Middle Earth. Err, highly recommended. Download these (for sampling purposes only, wink wink) if you aren’t too baked to find your mouse.

Cloudland Canyon – Krautwerk

Couldland Canyon – Heme

Ohhhhh looky, they have a MySpace page!
