Anybody ever hear of them? I just bought their cd and its ****ing fantastic. We have no tabs of them on here though. For you guys who haven't heard of them but like indie pop/garage rock you will be extremely pleased because they kick ass. http://myspace.com/wolfparade
Theres their myspace page, my personal favorite song is Shine A Light.

Yeah, they're great. Anything Spencer Krug (sp?) touches is gold, it seems.

I'm pretty sure everyone here has at least heard of them. They were a huge buzz band around last year or so. Personally, I think they are brilliant, but I prefer Sunset Rubdown (Spencer's other band, for those who don't know). "I'll Believe in Anything" is a beautiful song.

^Well, they only have on full length album out, so you should definately pick that one up. They also have a few EP's floating around somewhere; one of them is quite easily available, the others not so much anymore.

i saw them a few months ago. i don't really like their album and thought i might like it more after seeing them live, but i probably dislike them even more now.

I love these guys! I bought their album a few months ago after looking for a while to find it cheap.

In the end I got Apologies to the Queen Mary (Wolf Parade) and Pablo Honey (Radiohead0 for $25 (Canadian) when I could only ever find them 20$ each previously! I recommend erveryone here to check it out.

i don't think i was in the right mood that night, and their songs just seemed off. and not in the raw way i would have expected. they played their songs like a cover band with no talent. i did get the setlist though, and a few photos and videos that i never uploaded to youtube because the sound was pretty bad

Dont' forget Wolf Eyes... weird band, but pretty good if you're in the mood. Also, no Wolf Parade is not a noise rock duo.

^Yes, I actually prefer Sunset Rubdown. They are more original and experimental, plus I like Spencer's voice better than Dan's. Empty Threats of Little Lord, They Took a Vote and Said No, and Shut Up I'm Dreaming of Places Where Lovers Have Wings are all brilliant.

I also like Sunset Rubdown better. All those songs you listed are gold from that CD.

Krug's other project though (Atlas Strategic) is not my favorite. Although, aparrently he is in another band called Swan Lake, with the girl from Frog Eyes, and a guy from Destroyer. I heard that they are great, has anyone heard them?

Oh, and Wolf Parade are fantastic, I was humming "I'll believe in anything" all throughout work today.

Swan Lake is pretty damn good in my opinion but out of the three I think they are the worst (which means they are still good). So the order goes:
1. Sunset Rubdown
2. Wolf Parade
3. Swan Lake

if you wanna check out swan lake look for the song 'Are You Swimming in Her Pools' it should give you a taste of what they are like.

Wolf Parade is by far the besy wolf band. And I also finally downloaded a Sunset Rubdown song (I love ATTQM) and wow, it is great. For some reason I fall in love with every canadian indie band I hear, probably because I live in Canada but man. Over the past three days I've downloaded a song each from Destroyer, Frog Eyes, The Besnard Lakes and SR and they're all amazing.

Wolf Parade is by far the best wolf band.

I'm pretty sure this should be etched in stone some where. They're a great band. Apologies To The Queen Mary is great.

It's that band with the guy who has a enourmous 'fro. They sound like Led Zeppelin.

(it was a lousy attempt at being funny.)

the new albums is really good, I reccomend it to fans. favorite track I think is maybe fine young cannibals, but really they're all good.
