Wolf Parade - Expo 86 (new album / stream)

Wolf Parade

Expo 86

(Sub Pop)

Releasing: 29 June

There has probably never been a bigger week for fans of Canadian alt-rock collectives than this one. Not only have the new Broken Social Scene and New Pornographers albums hit the stores, but the first songs from the forthcoming Wolf Parade full-length, Expo 86, have been leaked. If you thought the group's "difficult second album" At Mount Zoomer sounded sprawling, the two new tracks, streaming courtesy of Pitchfork, hint at something even more ambitious on Expo 86. Both "Ghost Pressure" and "What Did My Lover Say? (It Always Had to Go This Way)" have almost proggish qualities to them that have smoothed out the scruffiness of Wolf Parade's earlier work, even as the band's sound seems as full and brimming over as ever. Expo 86 is set for release on June 29.
