Lily & The Parlour Tricks - Requiem

 

Americana/indie pop band Lily & The Parlour Tricks are a six-pieces group from New York with influences by The Andrews Sisters, The Everly Brothers, NIN and The White Stripes. Their first EP was recorded live at Daptone Studios in Brooklyn, and they are currently working on a followup. Their single, "Belle Gunness" was featured in a BMW commercial. Lily & The Parlour Tricks' "Requiem" song sounds convincing, direct, honest, harmonious, sweet, romantic, inspiring, and a long list of adjectives that I could keep saying without breathing until drop in the floor. Gorgeous!!!

 

Lily & The Parlour Tricks will be playign at SXSW. See show dates here

Japanther - Vicious

 

The "Japanthers" ;) have a new album, "Instant Money Magic",  out April 11th worldwide via Seayou Records. And they have a new video and single, "Do It (Don't Try)" as well.  The album is a fourteen-track collection of remarkable songs as "Common Born", "Take me In And Let Me go", the single "Do It (Don't Try)", or "Vicious", one of my favourites. Japanther's new album is as colourful as it's cover art, and it is a never desapointing bet if you are fan of the sound and work of the New Yorker duo. Another set of wonderful songs to add to their live repertoire, already fullfilled with the very best of the band. Don't miss them if they play by you, so have a look to their dates here.
