Indefinite Hiatus

I am saddened to say that I will have to put my blog on an indefinite hiatus due to the fact that I currently have more than I can handle on my plate. I want to thank everyone that has ever visited this blog. I hope I have pleasured your eardrums.

You may continue to follow me on Twitter, where I will still post song recommendations and links to any other cool music related news/songs/etc. I will also continue to be a guest-blogger on Pretty Much Amazing! The Music Blog.

Wolf Parade - California Dreamer

I carved your ever fading figure
Into the ever dying snow

Wolf Parade released their debut album in 2005 and it was great. It wasn't until 3 years later that they finally released their sophomore LP, At Mount Zoomer, which also turned out to be great. So thus far, the band of 4 from Montreal do not disappoint. After opening for The Arcade Fire and releasing an EP, they got the attention of Isaac Brock--front-man of Modest Mouse and A&R rep for Sub Pop Records. He signed them to the label and then helped produce Apologies to the Queen Mary. "California Dreamer" is one of my favourite tracks from Apologies. The album was recorded at Petite Église, the church in Quebec owned by the Arcade Fire.

Favourite Part: The entire second half of the song beginning with the explosion around 3:10.
