Noteworthy Artists: Wolf Gang

Here's a band that's still relatively new to the music scene, but gaining more and more momentum after touring with Florence and the Machine, Miike Snow, and Metric. When you listen to their debut album Suego Faults, you'll understand why they're included in such good company. Their music is an alternative style done extraordinarily well and plays nicely with other alternative bands. McElligott and Dave Fridmann, producer of The Flaming Lips, MGMT, and Mercury Rev helped put Suego Faults together, and their influence is evident throughout the album. McElligott's noteworthy eclectic style is stamped on each song, creating a range of upbeat electro indie pop, 70's style ballads, and even a dash of stadium rock. While this mix might seem more schizophrenic than a true collection, it weirdly works for the band. 

Songs on the album that I found particularly enjoyable were "The King and All of His Men", "Lion in Cages", "Back to Back" and "Suego Falls." New to Wolf Gang? Check out their album here:
