    Sound Kapital, with its concise length and sound quality (omit none of these songs), should be the flagship for such a shift. Spencer Krug should take note.

    If this is what we're going to be getting from Boeckner and company, perhaps Wolf Parade can stand to take a break for as many years as it needs to.

    Sound Kapital may be the best of the bunch-- a hard-hitting, spine-crushing work of post-industrial electro-punk that owes more to Suicide than Pavement. [Jul 2011, p.85]

    This album doesn't stray far from the formula of their previous work, but it isn't disappointing. It goes down smoothly and will keep your toes tapping until the very last beat.

    Sweaty and urgent, Sound Kapital is a snapshot of a dark world with hard-fought glimmers of euphoria.

    Occasionally, Boeckner and Perry replicate the 
lo-fi bustle of city life too well, achieving only a dense, dirty muddle

    Its nine tracks were composed solely on keyboards as the duo – Wolf Parade guitarist Dan Boeckner and wife Alexei Perry – forced themselves into a new songwriting regime.
