the parmesans - flat baroque

san fransisco's the parmesans, who i have covered here in the past, are back with a new album called 'flat baroque' featuring their brand of vintage styled string band music with a modern edge. up-tempo old-time tunes characterized by tight harmonies and propulsive double bass action. dig the r. crumb/classic cartoon inspired artwork:

according to what can be seen on their bandcamp page,  the parmesans appear to be doing a selection of live dates in the mid-atlantic and south before returning to their native california to play a few shows in support of the new slab. if you are nearby for any of those dates, check them out, i bet they put on a great show! in fact, you can be sure of it, because this razor sharp album was recorded live.

it's a name your price download. do it here.
