Former Houstonians Paris Falls make the short jaunt from the Hill Country this Saturday at 3pm for a free in-store show at Cactus Music to celebrate the release of its latest album, Soft Shoulders. I have had both the CD and the vinyl versions for a while now, and count the band’s latest batch of songs among its best. The band shows off more of its experimental side than on previous releases — with more electronics than in the past, for instance — yet the band still retains the classic rock influences that make them one of my favorite bands to come out of the Houston area.
Soft Shoulders — a 20-track double album — is available on CD, limited edition vinyl, and digitally via iTunes, Amazon, and other sites. Cactus will have it for sale, as well as provide the usual local refreshments.
