Parenthetical Girls go on US tour, fit themselves in nation's crevasses, like a piece of gristle between your teeth

Earlier today, I had some beef gristle stuck between my teeth. It was as uncomfortable physically as the phrase “beef gristle stuck between my teeth” is aurally. While I eventually was able to remove the offending meat, the plucky beef reminded me of Portland’s Parenthetical Girls. How so? Well, um, the food had found itself in the crevasse between my teeth, just like Parenthetical Girls will find themselves in the United States’ crevasses on their upcoming spring tour. That said, I don’t want to get rid of Parenthetical Girls, as I, in fact, like them a great deal. The comparison crumbles here.

While we’re talking stray beef, Parenthetical Girls have a new record coming out very, very soon. February 19 soon, in fact (that’s today). The record is called Privilege and will be released through Marriage Records and the band’s own Slender Means Society label. Though I have yet to hear the record, let me offer this early review: “Parenthetical Girls’ Privilege is perfect music for picking food out of your teeth! Five stars out of four!”
