I can’t say why exactly, but for some reason “Booths” off Parade’s new EP, “Answer Me,” reminds me of The Alan Parsons Project, just a little. Apart from the more obvious 90s alt-rock influences, I mean. The EP is a neat little thing, with interesting interplay between the Scott Trinhâ€™s lead guitar lines and Emily Martinâ€™s bass, as well as vocal tracks that continually surprised me in tone and range. Overall, it brings the Hotlanta band a notch above your average shoegazer. In some ways, the tracks reminded me of Edie Brickellâ€™s first record, which had been greatly influenced by Jerry Garciaâ€™s wandering licks.
