Nerd Parade : new album The Span of a Life
Vodpod videos no longer available.
With the upcoming release of The Span of a Life (on Sunday, March 1st 2009 at the 5 Spot in Altanta, GA – but online orders are already being accepted here at the nerdmart!) Nerd Parade has been touring tirelessly trying to spread the word of their epic recipe for the good kind of disaster. One thing is for sure, these kids have a wide appeal and rightfully so, their music is as varied as the best kind of mixed tape/cd: it has a little something for any mood. Tracks like “How Hard We Fall,” with a delicate two minute drone-whisper to a thrashing-guitar-scream instrumental movement at the end, strokes the intense guitar solo desire without being too indulgent, while tracks like “We Are Not Sleeping,” “The Span of a Life,” and “Dead Air and Denial” feature stronger vocals by Randy Garcia ( “Span” and “Denial” ) and Chris Sheldon ( “Sleeping” ), and highlight Abby Wren’s velvety powerhouse harmonies and hooks. On Guitars, Randy Garcia and John Jacobus shine like freaking fireworks, the rhythm section is insanely crushed by Rich Wilson on bass and Chris Sheldon on drums, and Miss Abby Wren acts as the sweet honey that sticks everything together.
Please, have a listen, and enjoy! I do.
Nerd Parade will be playing at Broadways in Asheville on Saturday, February 28th. I hope to see you there!
