The Parson Red Heads Return

Man it has been one hell of a long time since I last heard anything from Portlandbased group The Parson Red Heads. To be exact, they last released new material in 2013 with their album Orb Weaver. Well they are back and releasing a new album in just a matter of days. The band has sent over a few new singles to bring the hype and I personally like this one entitled “Coming Down” the best. It sounds like something out of 60s era L.A. if blended with indie sounds from the band’s new NW home.

You can check out 2nd single “Time After Time” here and 3rd single “Please Come Save Me” here.

New album Blurred Harmony is out on June 9th via Fluff and Gravy Records.

New Music From The Parson Red Heads

A long time favorite here with the ATH crew Parson Red Heads have a new single for download called “Burning Up the Sky” to preview their new upcoming LP.  This tune will appear on the band’s soon to be released album Yearling due out August 16th on Arena Rock Recording Company.  It seems like the band are changing their sound direction with more emphasis on vocal harmonies and country/folk pop instead of their familiar indie pop style.  Only time will tell if the band releases a whole album of similar tunes or if this is just a one time foray into new ground.
