THE SONG: Parliaments.

WHO: Thank You, I’m Sorry.

WHY IT’S HOT: We like artists with versatility and listening to “Parliaments” followed by “Manic Pixie Dream Hurl” is proof enough for us. When I heard the first chords in “Parliaments” I thought of dream pop groups like Beach House and Cigarettes After Sex. But that hot take shifted pretty quickly hearing some really lush sounding Fleetwood Mac sonic swils going on there. (Feels like Stevie Nicks et al. have been rediscovered by a whole new generation of songwriters.) Plus, the song’s about smoking. As a old friend once told me, “It’s hard to look bad smoking a cigarette.” Same goes for singing about one.
