The Parson Red Heads

Album Title: Field Mouse Carnival
Release Date: 2006
Rating:
Genre: Acoustic
Acoustic and warm, The Parson Red Heads are a six-piece band originally from Eugene, OR who now reside in Los Angeles, CA.

The Red Heads write solid folk-pop songs, with fresh beats and charming lyrics. The band is Evan Way (vocals, guitar), Brette Marie Way (drums), Dane Garrard (bass), Charlie Hester (guitar), Erin Way (keyboards, tambourine), and Sam Fowles (guitar, tambourine).

Field Mouse Carnival is a five track EP that settles in like an in-law. The first impression is dull, but by the time the CD is over, there are likeable traits.

"My Heart is Bursting" was a bad choice for a first song. It is short and far from sweet, but by song three the songwriting makes sense. "On Burning Up The Sky", Way sings: "Everything is different now / The world has fallen asleep somehow."

Track three "Different Sound" is a sweet melody, which sounds similar to Donovan's 1972 single "Colours". Way sings with backups: "I see the sun rising in your eyes, I can feel your hands when you are gone."

Look for The Parson Red Heads' full-length record King Giraffe in early 2007.
