The Coathangers - Parasite [Indie Exclusive] (12" Single)
When The Coathangers first stormed on the scene over a decade ago, their power resided in their ability to craft a crooked hook out of a grimy guitar line, a delightfully crass chorus, or an enticingly hamfisted drum-and-bass groove. With each successive album, the Atlanta garage punk ensemble has increasingly tempered their brash charm with sharp-witted pop.
The trioâs latest mini album, Parasite, explores the space between their initial unbridled expressionism and their recent nuanced songcraft . âI'd like to think the EP takes you on a journey through the bandâs existence,â says guitarist / vocalist Julia Kugel of the sequencing of the songs on their latest offering.
Available exclusively through independent shops such as ourselves, the 12â is pressed on sea green vinyl, and includes an etching on its B-side.
