Wolf Parade EP

Fans of Modest Mouse and Arcade Fire will love Wolf Parade, the newest import from Montreal, Canada. In fact, Isaac Brock helped produce some of their new 4-track EP, and Wolf Parade's guitarist/vocalist Dan Boeckner and drummer Arlen Thompson have played with the Arcade Fire. "You Are A Runner, And I Am My Father's Son" (MP3) off of their forthcoming EP, Wolf Parade, released Jul. 12, hints at a promising full-length album, Apologies to the Queen Mary, due out in October. Boeckner's distinctly powerful voice lends a wonderfully random yet controlled aspect to the haphazard stripped-down drums and guitar. The music is refreshingly simple, and makes you want to twitch the night away.
