We've been fans of the sharp pop acumen of songwriter BRIAN E. KING for quite a wile, all the way back to when he interned here at the Phoenix and refused to listen to any music released after 1970. In the last few year's he's been making the rounds with Oranjuly -- check out the sweet-as-punch single "The Coldest Summer" -- but re-emerged late last year with his new project, PARKS.
First offering "Sweater Weather" is no stranger to WFNX, and the band was selected in this week's Class of 2013, a look around town for the best new bands in Boston. A few weeks ago, he set up shop with Parks at the Cambridge Antiques Market, and the massive shop is the perfect backdrop for the band's dusty jangle-pop.
Catch Parks live on stage February 9 at the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge, and then March 1 at the Sinclair with Milo Greene.
