((Wolf Parade)) Band Profile and Upcoming SXSW Concerts - Oh My Rockness

The latest stellar Sub Pop signee, Canada's Wolf Parade is generating tons of buzz on the heels of their most recent tour with Arcade Fire. Arcade Fire (or Frog Eyes) is a good reference point for these guys' epic post-pop (no clue what post-pop means) sound, albeit a little heavier on the keyboard tip. Modest Mouse singer Isaac Brock fell in love with these guys, which is how they landed on Sub Pop and why Brock is producing their debut full-length.

Wolf Parade claim they are making folk music, not "art rock." And with such strong melodies, I would not argue with them. Oh, and singer Spencer Krug goes NUTS on stage. He's crazy like all the truly good ones are. Wolf Parade rank up there with Arcade Fire, The Unicorns and Black Mountain as one of Canada's best recent bands.
