A split release with Parenthetical Girls' own label Slender Means Society, this split single features two very unlikely bedfellows covering each others' classic tracks.
Portland OR art-pop provocateurs Parenthetical Girls present their arch, orchestral arrangement of Extra Life's 2010 single "Head Shrinker". The original spare neo-folk ballad is transformed into a Bacharachian study in perverse schmaltz.
Extra Life re-imagines the Parenthetical Girls' classic body horror ballad "I Was the Dancer" as a 9-minute-plus ambient dirge, weighted with cold synths and trashed drum machine.
