New Wolf Parade - "Call It a Ritual"
It seems the music blogs are all gushing today over the new single from Wolf Parade, "Call It a Ritual." I won't outright dissent on this one, but I'm not sure I agree with the level of praise being handed out. I loved Apologies to the Queen Mary as much as anyone, but this track is so muddled and noisy at times I find it frustrating. I do like the heavy piano and melody, though it would be nice to read through the sometimes indecipherable lyrics.

I will say I've liked it more with multiple listens, so maybe it's a grower. "Call It a Ritual" will appear on Wolf Parade's forthcoming, but currently unnamed album. Sub Pop has more info.
