New Music: Wolf Parade

The first (non-live) taste of Wolf Parade's forthcoming sophomore effort (due out June 17, though still without a title) has arrived. Built around Spencer Krug's marching piano chords, left-field poetry, and distinct croon, the song finds the band wholly in its comfort zone. Clocking in at under 3 minutes, "Call It a Ritual" doesn't build to the anthemic heights of Apologies' best tracks, nor does it showcase the electrifying energy and pure catchiness of which the band is capable. Nonetheless, "Ritual" acts as a much-needed snack for fans hungry for new Wolf Parade material, and should help everyone keep a calm head while waiting for the eventual and inevitable album leak.


(title TBD, due out 6/17)

Sup with all the pro-Clinton links below? Also, "From indie rock to (non-Soulja Boy) hip-hop " is the douchiest/poser thing I've ever seen written.
