This week’s Sunday in-store performance is by the Parlour Suite, couple Inga and Joel Roberts, who are joined on their debut EP by percussionist/drummer Peter Anderson. They’re kind of like a hometown She & Him. The new EP, Everybody’s Looking, is filled with the same sort of uptempo, lively pop that’s perfect for these bright spring days.
(“We Got to Get Away”)
That’s the first track and yet, the first line mentions a record store! Inga Roberts sings lead on all the tracks except for this next one, “Fred Astaire”, which is sung by Joel.
Everybody’s Looking is one of several recent EPs that have been frustratingly short. It’s exciting to hear so many new bands so far this year, but I would like to hear more from a lot of them (especially the White Whales, whose Third Coast is a Hymie’s favorite). The Parlour Suite has just returned from an April tour of the west coast, so we can hope they’re scheduling some studio time soon.
You can check them out for yourself here at Hymie’s today at 3pm.
