Free Music Humpday! Parenthetical Girls - "A Note to Self"

MP3: "A Note To Self" (From Privilege IV) - http://bit.ly/vdKCQf
The group continues this ambitious experiment with Privilege, pt IV: Sympathy For Spastics - a bizarre and bombastic four-song suite of familial entrapments, the sexual politics of class warfare, and blissful resignation. The EP opens upon "The Privilege," a meditative exploration of family discord and terminal nostalgia. "A Note To Self" follows, an uncharacteristically upbeat pop pastiche about coming to terms with critical failure, personal resentments, and creative responsibility. "Entitlements" is a spiteful attack on the indulgences of privileged self-pity (with wincingly direct allusions to a particular patron saint of privileged malaise), while "Sympathy For Spastics" explores the often bleakly patronizing intersection of class and sexual politics. Together, they comprise a bold, strikingly cohesive pop clarion call that further solidifies Parenthetical Girls' place amongst the most surprising and uncompromising pop groups at work today. And there's more where that came from.
