One album I have yet to mention from this year by accident is the new one from Minnesota's Ice Palace. Tying together the best parts of Archers of Loaf and Wolf Parade, Wonder Subtly Crushing Us features 10 rockers in quick succession. The songs are pop gems and art rockers. They've toured with labelmates Cloud Cult and Margot & The Nuclear So and So's. A few months ago I read about and saw stills for the video for the catchy number "Thoughts/Facts" and finally last week the video was spotted on YouTube. Speaking of spotting, can you tell which band in the video is Ice Palace? It's not that hard.
