The Parting Gifts – Strychnine Dandelion (In the Red LP) Another side project, this time Greg Cartwright (Reigning Sound) and Coco Hames (The Ettes) fashion an album of solid ’60s girl-group influenced rock’n’roll. Nothing radically different from either artists respective catalogs, but a heck of a lot more fun than the last Reigning Sound record. All comes down to the tunes and this one has ’em in spades.
