The Parting Gifts

Add Date: November 23 

Artist: The Parting Gifts 

Album: Strychnine Dandelion 

Label: In the Red 

Genre: Rock 

Comments: Garage rock mainstay Greg "Oblivion" Cartwright and The Ettes' Lindsay "CoCo" Hames have teamed up to form The Parting Gifts, and here's their debut on In the Red (Vivian Girls, The King Khan & BBQ Show). Strychnine Dandelion is by no means a cut-and-dried garage rock record, though, as the band--joined at times by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys and Patrick Keeler of The Greenhornes and The Raconteurs--delves into blues rock, '50s and '60s pop and even some outlaw country.

Lots of fun. Start with "Keep Walkin'," "Shine," "My Baby Tonight" and "Bound to Let Me Down."
