Sunset Rubdown

Dragonslayer (Jagjaguwar)

Wolf Parade should call it quits (and not just because the band's last album was a dud). But Spencer Krug should devote all his energy to Sunset Rubdown---everything this band (which includes members of Pony Up! and Miracle Fortress) does kicks ass. Especially Dragonslayer, its third full-length, which even surpasses the critically acclaimed Random Spirit Lover. And though half of the songs clock in at over five minutes ("Black Swan" is seven minutes long and the epic closer "Dragon's Lair" tops 10), the songs never lose their focus or urgency. Deftly weaving flashes of profound emotion and tenderness through exciting crescendos, big riffs and pulsating rhythms, Krug has created something truly majestic.
