Parenthetical Girls, PWRHAUS, Stay Calm
1001 SE Morrison St.
[ART POP TITANS] Seeing Parenthetical Girls is a rite of passage in Portland music. The unapologetic, always theatrical local quartet delivers more feeling during a single live show than most bands do in a year. Privilege (Abridged), which culls the best songs from a series of vinyl-only EPs, dropped last month, and the sometimes baroque, sometimes glam, sometimes dance-y album stretches pop to the brink of bursting. Rooted in Zac Pennington’s ever-whiffling, effervescent vocals, Parenthetical Girls continues to emphatically redefine what it means to be musically novel and avant-garde.
