Best CD We Got In The Mail Today: James Husband A Parallax I
James Husband has been a member of of Montreal for some time now. He was also a part of the Athens-based collective Elephant Six, playing with Great Lakes, Essex Green, Ladybug Transistor, and Marshmallow Coast. A Parallax I is his debut album. Polyvinyl will release it on October 27th, but we’ve been listening to it all day. The collection of songs sound a bit like the bands he’s been associated with mixed with sixties bands like the Kinks and the Zombies. In fact, “Waiting on Rayne” sounds like a lost Zombies track. Parallax was recorded between 2003 and 2007 in of Montreal’s Athens-based home recording studio and Stockholm’s Up & Running and Truckland Studios. If you remember the Elephant Six bands and are nostalgic for their heyday, head over to Husband’s myspace page and preview some songs. Click here to listen.
