Parts and Labor Receivers

Parts & Labor also has a new album out called Receivers. The band, who visited the show as a trio, is now a quartet. And, as Jim and Greg explain,“Evolver”is a more apt title for their album. For Jim it's as if their sound went from black and white to Technicolor. He calls the record“amazingly tuneful,”and says they are now up in the realm of great noise-rock bands like Pere Ubu. Greg thinks the lineup change is responsible for the expanding sound. The drumming is less chaotic and more trancelike. And the melodies are amazing. Greg calls Parts & Labor one of the best bands working today, and their album gets two Buy Its.
