Vancouver '86

(A parade of the leisure kind)

Here's a track from the forthcoming Wolf Parade album, titled "Expo 86". A reference to the World Fair held in Vancouver that year. When I was a wee lad, I wore the shit out of a t-shirt my uncle brought back from that event, as if the more I wore it, somehow I was magically curing AIDS, which was also big in the 80's.

I digress, check "Yulia" below. "Expo '86" will be released on June 29th, via the always wonderful, prolific, and still relevant Sub Pop Records. You can preorder the album HERE.

Rock The Bells

How fun is this album? Check out "Kids" by the highly buzzed, Sleigh Bells. This Brooklyn duo brings the goods on their debut recording "Treats". The duo consists of Derek Miller, formerly of Poison The Well, and singer Allison Krauss who was formerly in a teenage pop act called Rubyblue. I'm gonna give these guys a pass on these youthful blunders, as "Treats" is just that good.

While we're not even at the end of May in '10, I'm gonna tap "Treats" for album release of the year. Enjoy "Kids", kids.
