Though I didn't get the opportunity to really cover Wolf People's Steeple album for 2010, the band will be touring to support the album. Their new single, "Silbury Sands" is worth checking out: Nice progressive signatures and a legitimately classic tone. The tour dates are only relevant if you're in the UK. Information on the band's current happenings are courtesy of Jagjaguwar:
