Parenthetical Girls

MP3: Parenthetical Girls - One Father, Another

MP3: Casiotone For the Painfully Alone - Love Connection

Slender Mean Society owner Zac Pennington proves that his great ear for great music doesn't just stop at releasing it, but writing it. Parenthetical Girls might freak you out a little bit (look at their album covers, it's pretty much an audible version of that) but there is something really quite beautiful on the surface. "One Father, Another" was the song that struck me the most when seeing them live (both times). It builds and builds until it sounds like all the players exploded. It makes little sense but at the same time manages to sound together.

As a bonus, I've included Casiotone For the Painfully Alone's cover of PG's "Love Connection". A personal highlight from last years delightful "Etiquette".
