BioNew album - the fifth - from Jarid del Deo (Unbunny/Nervous Plants) with help from old friends Steve Haruch, Gregg Porter (The Hotel Alexis/Milkweed), Julie Law-Linck, and Two Ton Santa Records' Guy Capecelatro III and new friends Paul Chastain (The Velvet Crush) and Parasol's own Roy Ewing (Braid/Very Secretary). Recorded with Sidney Alexis (The Hotel Alexis), Paul Chastain, and The Rights (Rogue Wave). After releasing 4 albums in the US and appearing on a variety of compilations in Japan, New Hampshirite Jarid found himself moving from Portsmouth to Champaign-Urbana, Illinois for a year-and-a-half. Snow Tires is a masterful new album intimately plumbing life's changes while growing musically and lyrically. This is one of those records we lifelong music fans dream about as it combines the fragility of Elliott Smith, the humanity of Neutral Milk Hotel, the melodic sensibility of Matthew Sweet, and the careworn metaphors of The Mendoza Line.
