album review: wolf parade

    We anticipated Wolf Parade would make a solid record, but no one could have anticipated the kind of quality it would possess: like coffee or good wine, these nine tracks are an acquired taste. And it's not that it is a bad record, but one that needs multiple listens. Perhaps its the plethora of side projects behind the boys (Sunset Rubdown, Handsome Furs, Frog Eyes, and Swan Lake... whew) that makes the album inaccessible at first. With all the songwriting muscle, and the development of Dan Boeckner as an equal to Spencer Krug (at least while they're on this mountain). ..Keep Reading.. -joe puglisi

    Hear the At Mount Zoomer track "Call it a Ritual" on Baeble.
