Looking back, 2010 was an odd time to go on indefinite hiatus. Led by Spencer Krug and Dan Boeckner, who also helms Operators and is the co-frontman in Divine Fits with Spoon's Britt Daniel (a band that also boasts hometown drummer Sam Brown), Wolf Parade released three critically acclaimed records on Sub Pop, then sorta-kinda bowed out. But last year saw the release of Cry Cry Cry, a return to form for the Canadian act, which effortlessly jumps between proggy epics and taut, lean rockers. (Don't miss it)
