Download Love You to Pieces our newest Industrial Ragtime Records release.

Featuring Melina on voice, Eddie on National Steel Guitar and ukulele, Jeff on upright bass and Fender Rhodes, and Fabio on drums and all things percussion. Also special guests Alan Williams on trombone, Adam Scow on fiddle, Everett Katigbak on gypsy guitar (Crazy Days) and Julian Gross on swing rhythm guitar (25 Reasons).

Recorded March 2016 Hyde Street Studio C, San Francisco Epic Engineering & Mixing Scott McDowell Master Masterer Jonathan Kirchner Produced by Parlor Tricks 

Released in August 2011, Parlor Tricks effectuates seven songs in vivid industrial ragtime splendor.

A red hot version of “Was I Drunk, Was He Handsome, and Did My Ma Give Me Hell?” kicks off the recording—a cover of Dorthy Dunn’s 1931 Ziegfield Follies runaway smash—with smoldering, seductive vocals and smoking improvisational flights from the band. 

Released in March 2008, Parlor Tricks eponymous first foray into digital recording on Garagista Records. This recording features Tampa Red’s My Baby Said Yes and 9 original songs, including Midnight Blue, an ode to Blue Note records... and one in particular. Plus, Hambone Rag, Sweet Potato and other formidable industrial ragtime favorites.

Parlor Tricks contributed three songs to Garagista Music’s 2007 Holiday CD Compilation
Over the course of five days in July 2007, dozens of musicians wandered in and out of Second Act Studio in Irvington, NY to record holiday favorites. Parlor Tricks contributed one original—Under the Tree, which has been heavily featured by Rumblefish—and two rocking covers, Away in a Manger and Deck the Halls. All three songs are what you would only expect to hear from a band hardened to sappy sentiment and steeped in a musical stew equal parts Josephine Baker and Ramones. They are, in short, completely unexpected.

Available NOW at Garagista Music. 

As a service to those among our most beneficent and appreciative audience who through scientific ingenuity, technical acuity and general activity have achieved the ability to traverse chronology at a rate and heading divergent from that bearing and progression considered by most the norm for passage through such, we invite you to join us for a past performance. 

 

We ask only that you avoid requests for songs from recordings previous to that which is contemporaneous, and thus avoid any potentially embarrassing and space-time continuum disrupting temporal mishaps from occurring, again.

 

We greatly look forward to making your acquaintance before, soon, later and/or anytime thereafter.
