MUSIC: Wolf Parade

Reaching yet again into The Believer magazine vault, this is a Wolf Parade cover of a Frog Eyes song titled "Claxxon's Lament". Most certainly my favorite track off the 2005 music compilation in the June-July issue of the mag, it's a wonderful complement to the Parade's "Apologies to the Queen Mary" album. I'm a huge fan of the dueling lead singers, which is actually kind of surprising since it doesn't always come off so well.

::: Wolf Parade - Claxxon's Lament (Frog Eyes cover)

For those of you who don't know, one of the Wolf Parade lead singers (Spencer Krug) started a side project called Sunset Rubdown. I bought their EP and am anxiously awaiting their debut full-lenth album. For now, you can get these four tracks from their Myspace Page.

::: Sunset Rubdown - I'll Believe in Anything...
::: Sunset Rubdown - Hope You Don't Stoop to Dirty Words
::: Sunset Rubdown - I Know the Weight of Your Throat
::: Sunset Rubdown - Snake's Got a Leg II
