PARADE-“Answer Me”

Posted: August 23, 2007 by dillion in Indie Pop, MP3, Music

I can’t say why exactly, but for some reason “Booths” off Parade’s new EP, “Answer Me,” reminds me of The Alan Parsons Project, just a little. Apart from the more obvious 90s alt-rock influences, I mean. The EP is a neat little thing, with interesting interplay between the Scott Trinh’s lead guitar lines and Emily Martin’s bass, as well as vocal tracks that continually surprised me in tone and range. Overall, it brings the Hotlanta band a notch above your average shoegazer. In some ways, the tracks reminded me of Edie Brickell’s first record, which had been greatly influenced by Jerry Garcia’s wandering licks.

Plus, it’s just 5 bucks on CD Baby.

That’s Hott-Parade
