    Neverending Mix, 8.7.08

    Man. Wolf Parade is so good. I don't think their new album, "At Mount Zoomer," is as good as "Apologies to the Queen Mary," but it's still pretty freaking good. Spencer Krug is a phenomenal songwriter, and for me, that's saying a lot, because as far as I can tell his lyrics don't make any sense. He's just got such an incredible sense of melody and of how to write powerful, anthemic rock songs, without letting it get bogged down by pompousity. And the keyboard sounds are awesome.

    Canada! You've got some great indie rock bands. And you have poutine. And standardized health care. And polar bears. I vote that Maine becomes the next province. Whaddya say?
