Dear Philadelphia: Stop putting out rad records this year, please. It’s not that we don’t want them. We just have trouble keeping up and are going broke. While we’ve been digesting new jams from Kite Party, Three Man Cannon, Cayetana, the Menzingers, Beach Slang, and a million others, Amanda X have thrown their hat into the ring and how could we say no to them? They just sent us a demo of their song “Parsnip” and maaaaaan, now we’re amped about the record they’re currently working on. So while we twiddle our thumbs and wait patiently for that like a buncha doofuses, you can listen to “Parsnip” below. Also, Amanda X are leaving for tour next week so catch them then and hassle them about their new record for us. When is it coming out? WE WANT ANSWERS.
