Michael Parallax - Cough Syrup EP

Michael Parallax (part of Oh Fortuna) from Gainesville, Florida, just released an EP titled "Cough Syrup". With 10 tracks in total you may think of it as a full-length, the work is definitely there. Cough Syrup consists of mainly one or two minute songs, with the longest being "From the Inner Lid" at 3:32. The songs share similar melodies but approach in various different ways with some songs more acoustically-driven and others with more by electronics. As with Oh Fortuna, the vocals and harmonies are really poppy and great. Sometimes there are small hints of ukulele or guitar, most times everything blended with reverb and same tape pops and crackles, nice sounding bells trailing off with delay, and waves of ambience present themselves frequently throughout the course of the EP.
