PAARKS: Stranger Shores: LP

Super charming early 2000s indie pop tunes from Swedish band Paarks. Bands like Modest Mouse and even some glimmers of The Sea And Cake came to mind, but Clap Your Hands And Say Yeah is a spot-on comparison. Just a series of flowing songs with gleaming guitar, weaving melodies, and a bouncing bass. The vocals are off-kilter and quirky, and their melodies are intricate but catchy. Easy on the ears. If you’re into early 2000’s indie, this is for you. –Camylle Reynolds (Loftslott, luftslottrecords.com)
