Though it’s been five years (yikes) since Wolf Parade released their debut album, Apologies to the Queen Mary, I still wake up humming, “We’ve both been very brave / walk around with both legs,” from the song “I’ll Believe in Anything." Unlike most of the records I listened to in 2005 (Sufjan Stevens, I’m looking at you), this puppy has had staying power.
Though their follow up, At Mount Zoomer, didn’t do much for me, today marks the release of their third studio album, Expo 86, which was recorded and mixed quickly in late February and early March 2010.
Sub Pop is streaming the album for free for a full week. So far, I’m digging on “Oh You, Old Thing” and “Little Golden Age.” But I guess I’ll have to wait till the morning to see what sticks.
