2010 release, the third album from the Montreal-based Alt Rockers. Recorded during a matter of weeks, Expo 86 finds Wolf Parade slimming themselves down to a four-piece lineup and continuing to explore the intersection of Indie Rock and Post-Punk.

Wolf Parade might increasingly seem like the 'side project' compared to Sunset Rubdown and the Handsome Furs, but regardless of the other/past bands, Wolf Parade is one of the strongest and most consistent indie bands out there today. Expo 86 finds Wolf Parade marrying the catchiness of Apologies To The Queen Mary, with the depth and intensity of At Mount Zoomer. Krug offers up some of his strongest songwriting to date (which makes me really excited about the next Sunset Rubdown album), while Boeckner matches him practically song for song. It's a testament to how well Krug and Boeckner feed off each other that it's sometimes hard to who actually wrote the song, which is pretty easy on the first two records. Krug's "What Did My Lover Say? (It Always Had To Go This Way)" seems like it should have been written by Boeckner, while Boeckner's "Pobody's Nerfect" would have fit nicely alongside almost any track on Sunset Rubdown's last record.
Previous fans of the band won't be disappointed by any stretch of the imagination, while Expo 86 will most likely earn the band scores of new fans.
This album is better than the first two and will continue to go unnoticed. If released in a different era where 14 year old girls didn't decide what was popular, I guarantee this would be a huge record.
I never get tired of any song on this. Not even Yulia.
Little Golden Age
Two Men in Tuxedos
Just try to listen to this album without dancing in your seat a little.
