Wolf Parade and Charly Bliss
Canadian indie rockers Wolf Parade have only released three albums since 2005, all on the Sub Pop label, with a fourth due in October, Cry Cry Cry. Produced by John Goodmanson (Sleater-Kinney, Bikini Kill), the album’s lead single “Valley Boy” — said to have been written shortly after, and inspired by, the death of Leonard Cohen — includes an animated video streaming online. The band’s previous two full-lengths peaked at number 45 and then 48 on the U.S. album charts, followed by a nearly seven-year hiatus that many felt was likely permanent. They’ll embark on a headline trek that includes Observatory North Park on January 23. The bill includes Brooklyn power-pop quartet Charly Bliss, whose debut EP also spawned a three-part comic book and music-video trilogy. Currently plugging their full-length Guppy, released in April, expect to hear both that album’s lead single, “Glitter,” and their popular 2016 one-off “Turd,” released just after the election of Donald Trump, for whom the tune is named.
