Wolf Parade – Apologies to the Queen Mary

[Wolf Parade - Apologies to the Queen Mary] Canadian indie rockers Wolf Parade have received praise from numerous sources for their debut Apologies to the Queen Mary. Pitchfork and AllMusic both cite influence by to Modest Mouse and David Bowie, the former of which I can hear pretty much throughout, the latter only vaguely on some of the later tracks. I think they’ve achieved airplay on Live105, but nothing close to the popular success as ‘Float On’ for instance. I haven’t listened particularly carefully to the lyrics, but nonetheless certain lines have stuck out (Dear Sons and Daughters of Hungry Ghosts). A good addition to the collection following selections from Arcade Fire and Broken Social Scene.
