The latest goodie from Gold Robot – the label’s fourth 7-inch release – is the four-song Storm Driven Bird EP from the Parish. The group is led by husband-wife tandem of Zac and Kim Stanley, but they brought in a full band for this EP, including Graham Hill (aka Roman Ruins) on drums.
I want to say, upon my first few listens, that the Parish sounds something like a cross between Magnolia Electric Co. and and some of the more Southern-influenced ’70s rock. I may be totally off base. But I do know it’s nothing like Gold Robot’s previous two releases from Meanest Man Contest and Panther. Hunter appears to be building a wonderfully diverse catalog.
Check out Dummy in Trouble, a track that follows a catchy organ line into a wash of guitars and cymbals and (my favorite) pedal-steel guitar.
As an added bonus, if you buy the (yellow!) vinyl, you receive a coupon with a code for digital downloads.
