Wolf Parade 

Expo 86 (Sub Pop)

Do we need Wolf Parade anymore? After all, Dan Boeckner’s and Spencer Krug’s other projects (Handsome Furs and Sunset Rubdown, respectively) are riding on creative highs. More importantly, the last Wolf Parade album (At Mount Zoomer) was a crippling disappointment; it was like each frontman was writing in their own world, robbing fans of the creative tension that we first fell for. Enter Expo 86---punky, upbeat and, most importantly, filled with the sound of two great songwriters duelling in the same sandbox once again. There are no highs here quite like “I’ll Believe in Anything,” but no matter ---in accomplished fashion, Wolf Parade has once again justified its existence.

  • No amount of money is worth the environmental damage
  • Let’s invest in renewable energies instead
  • Depends how much cash I, personally, will receive
