Album Review

In 2005, Wolf Parade became the latest Canadian band to travel from CBC Radio 3 and New Music Canada fame to the hallowed halls of Internet buzz and indie scene hype. But as it was with Arcade Fire and the Most Serene Republic (to name only two examples) before them, the Montreal quartet is pretty deserving of the chatter. This self-titled set is only four songs long — two from the September 2005 release Apologies to the Queen Mary and two recorded with pal and fan Isaac Brock. The Modest Mouse impresario is an influence, too — Wolf Parade have a similarly skewed approach to indie pop, and vocalist Dan Boeckner sings in an approximation of sighing vacuum cleaner and David Bowie impersonator. But "Shine a Light" and "You Are a Runner and I Am My Father's Son" never lose their side-long catchiness, and they're helped along by various keyboards and laptops and simple, splashily effective drumming. "Disco Sheets" isn't as unique, but Hot Hot Heat and Franz Ferdinand fans will love it, and "Lousy Pictures" closes out the EP strong with some great dynamic shifts and an organ whirring beneath its scraggly electric guitar.

Customer Reviews

A great EP.... far as EPs go.

Just download 'Disco Sheets' and 'Lousy Pictures' and buy 'Apologies to the Queen Mary' to get the other two songs. And voila! You are now officially a 'Wolf Parade' fan. Welcome to some of the best music the planet has ever heard!

Lovely new music

Another 80s throw back with good vibes. At least I'll call it that -- since I grew up on prog, punk, then post punk. This is a happier Interpol. It has good hooks, great vibe, and just sounds fresher than most other popular music which seems to rehash, well I'm not sure... Lousy Pictures is a great tune. I heard this album while poking my head in a local record store. I was with my son so couldn't make a purchase. This EP is a great introduction and I'll go back and buy the new full album now.


I really dig this EP. Only four songs, but it's worth it. Shine a Light is simply a fantastic song, and I wonder why Lousy Pictures didn't make the album... it's one of their best songs. Interesting drum parts and nice bass lines come together with the hushed guitars and the raggedy vocals. They're a wonderful band though, and I really enjoy them. I bought the album and its been shoved into my CD player many, many times.

Brock helped the band secure a deal with Sub Pop while serving as...
