Singles Club - Holiday Edition: Parenthetical Girls

After listening to this here "Christmas-saving" holiday EP, I can safely say that I haven't been spending enough time with Parenthetical Girls. Any band that makes a habit out of putting together holiday EPs is more than ok in my book. Especially when the songs are really, really good.

Parenthetical Girls Save Christmas
is heavy on the jingle bells and heavy on the musical theatrics, and is full of the spirit of densely falling snow creating a landscape of beautiful, cold stillness.

Not only did the band give us three wonderful holiday songs, but they also announced a pretty hefty tour to kick off 2012. Mind you, I'm frowning at the lack of a DC date, but maybe Santa will work some magic and make that happen later in the year. Dates as follows:
