Hello bootlovers,

I’m going to keep this one pretty short because the music says more than any jibberjabber on my part could. Wolf Parade put on a helluva show (which is probably not news to you). They played Kingston for the first time this April – of course they were in the Kingston-area previously, when they headlined WIMF a couple of years ago, as you may recall. For first show in the city they delivered an hour & a half of fistpumping, shoutitout rocknroll. They gave us a near-perfect set list which included 8 new songs from their forthcoming record Expo 86 (released June 29th). You’ve probably heard the new singles already so you know that their new stuff sounds just as majestic as their old. Take a listen for yourself.

* Dear Sons And Daughters Of Hungry Ghosts
* Ghost Pressure
* What Did My Lover Say (It Always Had To Go This Way)
* Shine A Light
* Kissing the Beehive

Pretty awesome, eh?

Expo 86 is released June 29th. Buy it then; buy older WP releases now.

The band is touring all over the place in support of the new LP, including a bunch of all ages shows. So get yourself out there and see them this summer. Full dates here.

    Thanks for this.
    Zip for pt.1 isn’t working. It downloads 0 KB.
    Pt. 2 works fine.

      Hey Noname. Just checked it and seems to be working fine. You might want to give it another try.

    Thanks a lot. I haven’t listened to WP in months, but this gives me a reason to put them back in rotation.
