Wolf Parade are back! Their new album is called At Mount Zoomer and they have a whole slew of dates in July all over North America, so chances are you can get a live sample of the new album in the very near future. Upon first listen, I like it. I’ve always had this negative association with Wolf Parade as the band that threw shit at G. Love & Special Sauce at the Osheaga Festival in the summer of 2006 in Montreal (My hometown). But once I get passed that, the truth is that they make some pretty good music. My song of the week is my immediate favourite off of the new album. It may just be the catchiest song on the album, and I may come to have many other favourites (or none at all), but for right now, it’s California Dreamer. Enjoy!

(Au Revoir Simone Wearing the shirt they designed)
I have decided along with my friends at The Yellow Bird Project to write a weekly blog for their site. This doesn’t mean i will stop writing here. I’m just going to be writing more!
In case you haven’t heard, the Yellow Bird Project is a non-profit, charity organization, where they get artists we all know and love (Stars, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Hayden, Holly Throsby, My Brightest Diamond, Devendra Banhart, The National, Rilo Kiley, The Shins, Wolf Parade, Wolfmother, Broken Social Scene, King Creosote and Joseph Arthur) to design a t-shirt, with the proceeds going to the charity of the band/artist’s choice. Some charities that have been chosen are: The Elliott Smith Memorial Fund , The Nature Conservancy, and Art For Change.
This is a very awesome organization and i am honored to be writing a weekly blog for them!
