Parlovr


I always love it when bands send me stuff to listen to. Alex from Parlovr recently sent me a few of his bands material. I was grabbed immediately by their sound, quality, and craftsmanship. After hearing all the songs they sent me, I am going to buy their independently releases self titled album. I highly recommend this for anyone who loves where modern rock is going. There are elements of noise, fast/furious drumming, and melodic lyrics. And according to their myspace, they only use a k-mart guitar, a bad drumset, and a keyboard that has a mind of it's own. Remind me a lot of Arcade Fire on their song "All The Wold Is All That Is The Case". Their hit song it seems would be "Pen To The Paper", I really like the repetitive lyrics. I always enjoy new directions in songwriting. In a day of a myriad of bands, its ironic that it gets frustrating or just seems impossible to find a new sound or band to remind you just how great music can be, this is it.

The album cover art looks like Sara Guindon's work. Love her. I have a few of her illustrations. I just came across your blog in a search for The Avett Brothers. A nice blog you have here. I was checking out some older posts and noticed a jogging playlist posted by Dusty in July 2008. I would love it if this became a monthly, if not weekly, segment featuring a playlist of your current jogging music. I'm always on the lookout for a good mix of music to jog to.

I agree with the Wolf parade comparison. This is very good record and I'm enjoying it immensely.
