Biography

EXPO 86 ! OMFG!

What is it?! What ISN’T it?

It’s two (2) things!

It’s the name of Wolf Parade’s third LP.
And it’s the catchy name of the World’s Fair held in Vancouver, summer of 1986, where five young boys first became friends, just outside the Cars of the Future exhibit, and made a SECRET PACT (whoa!) to meet up in the early 2000s ... Read more in Amazon's Wolf Parade Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Wolf Parade- At Mount Zoomer 27 Aug 2008
Format:Audio CD
There is no doubt that Wolf Paradee haver progressed rapidly from there first album, apologies to queen mary which sounded excellent but very similar too a modest mouse tribute band. Here they have found there own, unique sound which is still indie rock/alternative but has alot more depth, with tracks like kissing the beehive (one of the best tracks) over 10 mins long. The entire album has alot more substance to it,with the feel that they havnt just generated the tracks just to get into the 'indie pop' market like some bands do these days (think pigion detectives...)but have developed an entirely alternative but still an indie rock sound
It sounds slightly like if Led Zep met The Arcade Fire, with psychodelic rock but at the same time alternative beats; all i can say is that if you like alternative indie rock music them im in no doubt that you will think that Wolf Parade have a great deal of talent and that they deserve to be more recognised than they are.
If you like bands like Black Keys, Arcade Fire, Black Mountain, Rogue Wave then i would suggest you should give this album a listen as though its very different from the previous bands that are mentioned, its still got that unique indie sound

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a damn good album 24 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is really great stuff, straight off the bat. The opening two tracks lock you in - familiar but fresh, rocking but thoughtful - this is real soundtrack to your life stuff. Like the Cars crossed with OK Go. California Dreamer is a classic. Deserve to be huge, which, of course, they won't be - they're too good for that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Look Deeper 17 Jun 2008
By Kenyon J. Weidle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard At Mount Zoomer, I was a little disappointed. It didn't seem to have the instant POP of Wolf Parade's first album, Apologies To The Queen Mary. That album broke onto the scene with gritty, electronically tinged rock songs that contained enough pop sensibility to appease any ear. At Mount Zoomer sounded like they were trying to repeat that effort, but with less success.

And then I listened again. And again. And again.

It became apparent that the album is more complicated than that.

Language City is gem. It opens with an excellent guitar riff and then enters the drums, the piano, and once a furious rhythm is established familiar synth buzzes through the air. They then break it down into a transcendent, hope-filled finish echoing, "We are not at home."

Exactly, the band is somewhere else now. Wolf Parade seems more concerned with the timing and progression of their songs.

"California Dreamer" starts strange with hopping bass and synth like a hypnopompic hallucination. The song then jumps into a psychedelic jam and finally ends leaving little of that initial strangeness resolved.

This oddity is followed by the cheery "The Grey Estates" wiping away the cobwebs of "California Dreamer."

"Fine Young Cannibals" follows with brooding guitar parts. Again the flow established in the previous song is interrupted. The song evolves into another dreamlike jam and the result is superb.

I could go on but I think I made my point. There is a surreal character in the album created by the shifting moods. Wolf Parade seamlessly moves between otherworldly jams and hallucitory peaks and valleys. The result epic in scope, though not as immediately accessible as Apologies. However, Zoomer is a much more interesting listen. Fans of Apologies who give the album a close and scrutinizing listen will discover a new world here. And it's a fun and mesmerizing place.

I can't finish this review without noting that album ends fantastically with Kissing the Beehive Pt 1 and 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars strange and awesome 8 Sep 2008
By ro0k - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
i found this by accident in a record store a couple weeks ago, excited to see a new Wolf Parade album. i am extremely pleased and it's most of what i've been listening to since i found it :)

At Mount Zoomer feels very solid as an album instead of having a few 'catchy' songs on it. highly recommended, go buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Wolf Parade - At Mount Zoomer 5 Sep 2008
By S. D. Mason - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
At Mount Zoomer (2008, Sub Pop) Wolf Parade's second studio album. ****

Certainly Arcade Fire's church studio didn't work the wonders for Wolf Parade's sophomore album as it did for them, but that doesn't mean the duo don't know how to make good music. At Mount Zoomer is strangely dense; in a way, it avoids the overly-layered approach that come to plague indie rock and alternative rock bands that want to veer further away than what is considered the all-too-obvious quirkiness. At the same time, they don't come off as too bouncy or weird. It's a delicate balance of a wide array of influences, but in the end, Wolf Parade are easily a staple band of the indie rock community. "Language City" has a whirlwind of synths, marking its independence from a run-of-the-mill studio single. "California Dreamer" sounds like a lost Doors take, featuring heavy electric keyboards and brooding vocals, mixing in some very progressive sounds. One waits to hear Morrison chime in on the chorus, "I thought I might have heard you on the radio/But the radio waves were like snow." The only snag may be "The Grey Estates," which sounds all too much like an Arcade Fire song. And while that in itself may not be bad, the idea that Arcade Fire could have done it so much better makes you wince. "Fine Young Cannibals" features a very orderly procession, with sparse bass, keyboards, and guitar. It sometimes meanders, but never does it stray too far, and Boeckner and Krug's vocals always bring it back. The album finishes with "An Animal In Your Care," a Simon and Garfunkel would-be complete with "La-la-lies" just like "The Boxer." At the end of the day, artists will be forced to look at At Mount Zoomer as a new twist with the same ingredients, because while there is no message or theme like there was on Neon Bible, the music itself is far more complex than it appears, revealing more intricacies with each listen. A very decent sophomore effort. (Soldier's Grin, Fine Young Cannibals)

5.0 out of 5 stars love at third listen 4 Aug 2008
By C. Mathews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Look, this is a different album than Apologies to the Queen Mary...one of my favorite albums ever. I can now admit that I was a little disappointed at first, after eagerly anticipating this release. Maybe I just wanted more of the same. I read that the band threw out some potential songs for just that reason. Now I appreciate this album like a second child- comparisons are a little unfair and I don't love it any less!

Standout tracks: Soldier's Grin, Grey Estates, Fine Young Cannibals!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dimiss the premature reviews 22 July 2008
By Shane Carpenter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl
If Sunset Rubdown and Handsome Furs had a child, it would be At Mt. Zoomer. This is Krug and Boeckner's fully realized musical vision and it's literally blowing my mind.
