Watch Parenthetical Girls perform on a decaying Oregon riverboat

In a special collaboration with Portland-based video production company IntoTheWoods.tv, the group Parenthetical Girls present a unique performance of their song “Curtains,” aboard an abandoned, decaying river boat on the banks of the Columbia river in Oregon. The performance is the first installment of a four-part documentary, which finds the group traveling to a series of strange and wondrous locations in and around their home of Portland, OR to celebrate the release of their forthcoming album, Privilege*.

About Privilege:
Unconventional is probably the most succinct way of putting it. Obsessive, eccentric, indulgent: they’re all equally fair. If Parenthetical Girls have learned anything over the course of their bewilderingly unorthodox discography, it’s that they are-for richer or for poorer-a necessarily singular pop group. It’s a peculiarity that they’ve learned to embrace-a single-minded conviction that pours itself over every corner of their latest album,Privilege.Having taken pop extravagance to its logical conclusion with their critically acclaimed, orchestral pop
opus Entanglements, Privilege finds a newly emboldened Parenthetical Girls giving the orchestra their leave-a
brazen reinvention as immediate as it is inspired. Returning to its core membership of vocalist/creative director
Zac Pennington and producer/arranger Jherek Bischoff (composer and collaborator with David Byrne,
Amanda Palmer, Xiu Xiu, etc.), Privilege retains the group’s signature ambitions-visceral intimacy, camp
austerity, lurid eloquence-while confidently embracing the perfect pop pastiche their previous records only
alluded to. Anchored by Pennington’s distinctively lilting vibrato, Privilege is a cascade of grim particulars and
gallows humor-an unflinching treatise on privilege, indiscretion, betrayal, sex and class politics, failure, and
resignation. This is Parenthetical Girls in fighting trim: unbridled, unambiguous, and with a new creative candor
that’s felt in both its words and music.

Originally recorded and self-released as a sequence of five self-contained, extremely limited 12″ EPs (each
heroically hand-numbered in the blood of the group’s members, and available only through direct mailorder)
the ambitious Privilege series was a grand and unequivocally impractical achievement. Privilege condenses the 21 recordings of the original series to a single, 12-track, remixed and remastered statement of purpose: a bold,
strikingly cohesive pop clarion call that further solidifies Parenthetical Girls’ place amongst the most surprising
and uncompromising pop groups at work today.
