music review: Parlour Bells

Unfettered seduction. Darkly romantic. From the first note, Parlour Bells makes me envision a setting rich with martinis, plush velvet, martinis, smudged gray eye shadow and tousled hair. Songwriting duo of Nate Leavitt and Glenn di Benedetto create dreamy pop songs in the vein of Roxy Music, The National and Tindersticks. di Benedetto’s sensual voice combines with soothing melodies and thoughtful, quirky lyrics. My favorites: “Pet Names” and “The Gargoyle.”
