Copyright concerns kept Wolf Parade from naming its second album, At Mount Zoomer, after the epic closer, "Kissing the Beehive." That would have been a better title, though: "Like kissing a beehive" is an apt description of the Montreal band's sound. Co-vocalists Dan Boeckner and, especially, Spencer Krug write songs that weave from intimacy and longing to claustrophobic tension. While Zoomer doesn't offer any single as cathartic as Apologies to the Queen Mary's "I'll Believe in Anything," it finds the band in tight form, forging a sound that nods to both men's individual strengths and side projects (Krug's Sunset Rubdown, Boeckner's Handsome Furs) while remaining utterly, beguilingly its own.
