It’s fitting that the mercury’s been hitting 80 degrees in Los Angeles over the past few days, making it feel like summer in the dead of Winter. Which fits perfectly with the vibes of the Parson Redhead’s debut record, King Giraffe that dropped yesterday on Yukon Records.

I’ve raved about their energetic stage show in the past and right now, they’re my favorite live band in LA. As for their debut LP, you won’t find many better “driving with the top down” records. It’s just breezy, catchy folk/rock in the vein of The Byrds and CSNY, with a bit of the Zombies mixed in.

My full Album Review of King Giraffe is up at Stylus now. (I gave it a B+ if you’re too lazy to click over).

Either way, the album’s recommended and if you’re in Los Angeles, their live show is a must-see. The Parsons open up for the Autumn Defense on February 16 and then for Menomena on March 10. Both shows are at Spaceland.
