MP3: Parakeet

Parakeet is the side project of Mariko Doi (the bassist for Yuck). Doi and James Thomas, from the band History of Apple Pie, worked together to give us "Shonen Hearts," a colorful, upbeat guitar tune. Doi's music making vehicle is a little more noise rock than Yuck, and "Shonen Hearts" is the perfect representation of Parakeet's alternative/grunge sound. It's the definition of "a jam." The song blends even amounts of vocals and guitar (or, to be more accurate, almost even...there is a tad more guitar). "Shonen Hearts" layers vocals and more complex instrumentals over a constant and steady guitar/drum rhythm. The vocals complete the overall sound and give the listener something entirely unique.
