When we were high on drugs

Yeah, a bit moon-y
I’ve always been of the opinion that Wolf Parade is better than any of its members’ many side projects. Still, Spencer Krug has released a handful of killer tunes over the years (“Stadiums and Shrines II” with Sunset Rubdown, “All Fires” with Swan Lake), so I’m always interested to hear what he’s up to. Today I wrote an Exclaim! article about his latest Moonface release, Organ Music Not Vibraphone Like I’d Hoped.

Listen to the eight-minute, electro-laden single “Fast Peter” below. Just like the album name suggests, it’s an organ-based tune with peppy lo-fi beats and Krug’s usual tense vocals. It’s not quite “I’ll Believe in Anything,” but it’s an awesome groove that’s carried by its uncharacteristically straightforward lyrics.

Thanks to One Thirty BPM for the stream.

    You are literally the Mayor of Wrongtown, New Wrongjersey. Handsome Furs and Sunset Rubdown collectively have more good tracks than Wolf Parade.

    That first one was stellar front to back, but Zoomer was some shit and Expo had three good tracks (the first one and the last two, natch).

    Handsome Furs and Sunset Rubdown kick the shit out of Wolf Parade proper. CHECK AND MATE MR. HUDSON. CHECK. AND. MATE!
