By • Dec 7th, 2008

Continuing on from yesterdays post about Canadian band “Wintermitts”, today’s band is also from Canada. Wolf Parade is an indie rock band from Victoria (British Columbia).

The group consists of five core members (Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen, Thomas Husmer, Rune Mølgaard & Rasmus Stolberg). OK, I still haven’t figured out “postrock” and now I have to […]

Caverns – This Are Syntax

By • Sep 12th, 2008

Caverns have been on the MP3 palyer for a couple of weeks now and it took me awhile to get into where they are coming from. No lyrics, no vocalist, no catchy hooks and it’s surprisingly engaging.
