Parson Red Heads Live On Daytrotter, Spring Tour With Blitzen Trapper

The Parson Red Heads' session at Daytrotter is now live!  Performing "Seven Years Ago," "Kids Hanging Out," "Happy We Agree" and "Burning Up the Sky" from last years' lovely Yearling, the recordings are an intimate look into the intricacies of the music created by the Parsons, a band whose music harkens to the most prolific and inventive elements in the canon of West Coast psych-folk.
 
Not everyone does it the way that the Parson Red Heads' Evan Way does it on the tremendous full-length, Yearling...The soul of the album comes in the form of the song, "Seven Years Ago," a gallop and a lilt of a story about a transformation...The Parson Red Heads, bring us closer to our own mid-life crises even we're way too young to be experiencing them yet. It's rusty poetry from a guy who has very little tread left on the bottom of his shoes and he's always going to feel like he's better off for it.
 
Listen to the Parson Red Heads live at Daytrotter!
 
As heard in their Daytrotter session, the true power of The Parson Red Heads is undeniable live.  The group will take a break from the studio with a handful of shows at the end of the month with Tommy Keene and then hit the road with fellow music mavericks Blitzen Trapper on a run of dates that will bring the group down to this year's SXSW!
