's/t,' pe-rad 

It's pronounced "parade."

Alex Davis, the kid behind local tape label Leftist Nautical Antiques, says that he irst heard pe -rd (pronounced Parade) at a basement house show. And on their debut album — a LNA cassette release — that warm, conined basement sound is captured perfectly. The local threepiece hammers out a persistent brand of low-fi rock. It’s uncomplicated. To the point. Candid, unassuming. And, at times, completely, totally lawless.

pe -rd is poignant by being understated. Songs amble along, vocals don’t always low. All of it — vocals, guitars, drums — seems to pick up and stem from nothing. “Travel Song” builds an ebbing and lowing, speeding and slowing soundscape, vocals jabbering out of time. Sometimes they make a normal song, but the band is at its best when it has little rhyme or reason — when pe -rd just happens.
