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)”.
