Video: Parakeet – Shonen Hearts

As I’ve mentioned before and as every bit of press Parakeet gets says, this band includes Yuck’s Mariko Doi and The History of Apple Pie’s James Thomas, at some point this will hopefully stop happening. Parakeet are great in their own right. This is the title track from their first EP which is out now digitally and available on a limited edition run of gold cassettes from November 19th. The video directed by Maria Cecilia is descirbed in the top youtube comment as “If the producers of Yo Gaba Gaba were on magic truffles this is what it would look like. ;0)”.

Stream: Parakeet – Shonen Hearts EP

Parakeet is the combined side project of Mariko Doi from Yuck and James Thomas from The History of Apple Pie. The band also features Jon Jackson who as far as I know is not currently in any other successful indie rock bands, but Parakeet are good enough that he shouldn’t feel too bad about that. Shonen Hearts is the bands debut EP and they are self releasing it on the 19th of November on a fancy limited edition gold cassette.

Yuck – Chew

New track from Yuck. Hard to believe they’re the same people to blame for Cajun Dance Party these days. So Nineties but in the best possible way. Almost certainly the best thing they’ve ever recorded.

Free for the taking|Duologue.

This time around we bring you a free download in the form of ‘Get out while you can’ a sharp and edgy, dark electro piece from the 5 strong group of creators. For me this tracks got an odd wild wild west styling to it, which is straight up weird when paired with the electro aspects. Check it for yourselves….
