This isn't going to win me too many friends amongst Canadian indie-rock fans.

I don't particularly like Wolf Parade or Arcade Fire.

It's not like I haven't tried them out. And it's not like these bands aren't talented, and prominent, members of a great scene — just listen to CBC Radio 3 anytime and you'll know that there are some fantastic artists out there, from Our Home On Native Land.

And yet, every time I try to listen to one of their songs... nothing really clicks for me. Wolf Parade seems a little too artfully-pretentious for my liking, and the Arcade Fire's singer has a voice that sounds like he's continually on the verge of crying.

I did manage to pick up my vinyl copy of Thriller from my brother's place on the weekend, though. I'm gonna go put that on. Peace out, bastards.
