Parkade is a band from Edmonton, Alberta. Their sound is hard to pigeon-hole, so they might
as well be thrown under the banner of post-rock. They're earlier stuff is a bit harsher,
like a combination of Bitch Magnet, KPunk Modest Mouse, and
Flying Saucer Attack, while their newer songs have a more matured sound, incorporating elements of
Drone-Rock, they now sound closer to The For Carnation, or The Sea and Cake.
sounds like Arovane, only with more lyrics.
All the members are graduates of the improvisational group
"Music For Plants",
and have played with Archer Prewitt, and Sam Prekop of The Sea and Cake, and Dale
Morningstar of the Dinner is Ruined. They were evicted from the stage when they opened for
The Smalls. They have also opened for Fugazi.
They recently released an album on Calgary's Catch and Release records, a record label devoted to
releasing the works of artists who have not yet had their music released, or are not positioned for
large scale release. You can hear Parkade by going to http://www.mp3.com/parkade.
