so, who’s takin bets on lohan in the death pool?
i cant ask for anything more out of a band than possessing the ability to transport me to another time and place. a time before bills, a mortgage, and responsibility ruled my world, which is why i usually fall back onto the early – mid nineties as my go to dream place. atlanta’s parade has such the ability and thank god for em. maybe its their guitar tunings/tones or the fact that lead parader carrie hodge sounds vaguely reminiscent of ex-throwing muse and belly singer, tanya donnelly – who i used to absolutely love. their new ep, answer me, is cool plain and simple. its smart without being pretentious and familiar without leaving the “i have heard this all before” aftertaste.

i was kinda excited at first when i got this press release about russian rapper ivan ives and his teamin up with cappadonna from the wu. the more i read the less excited i became though. i was hoping for an actual russian instead of a guy that was born in mother russian but now lives in brooklyn. not to say he’s not russian, shit his name is ivan, but whatever. luckily, this track off of his sophomore disc iconoclast is pretty tight.
