The King of Pop Mountain has returned. Parks is the new outfit from Oranjuly mastermind Brian E. King. “Sweater Weather” is the band’s first single. It proves that I may have been premature in my prediction that Mr. King may soon be battling dragons, bees and broken glass. Apparently there is no bottom to the well from which he draws some of the city’s best power pop. Jangly guitars, bouncing bass, a snappy beat and the perfect tambourine part keep the groove buzzing along under the pitch perfect hooktastic harmonies. Every facet of this gem has been polished to perfection. All the pieces work together, unlike the hodgepodge of words I’ve thrown together in this post. I should have just told you to listen to the song.
