The Parson Red Heads were one of LA’s much-loved indie/folkie-type bands until they moved to Portland, leaving their hometown fans to pine from afar. But there’s plenty of beautiful music that comes out of pining from afar—the best of which came from Gene Clark—and so the Parson Red Heads return with a lovely and melancholy set of new songs that sound like they’ve been missing LA just as much. The heartbroken country-rock stargazers of the early '70s are all over this, and if you ever liked anything between the Flying Burritos Brothers and Beachwood Sparks, you’ll squeeze a tear into your craft beer at this one. The band's new EP is available at shows, so you can make the night last forever.
