Portland experimental pop band Parenthetical Girls have compiled their five Privilige EPs into one full-length collection, conveniently-titled Privilege (Abridged). While each of the 12 tracks have all been previously released, their former tour mates (and fellow Christmas aficionados) Los Campesinos! offer something new with a remix of “Sympathy For Spastics”.

The original tune was built on little more than a sparse classical piano and Zac Pennington’s theatrical vocals, both of which profoundly hint at underlying depths of raw heartache. The Welsh six-piece pair Pennington’s vocals with a more lively, jumbled beat of hand claps and lasery synths, adding a little levity to the mournful number. Stream it below.

Privilege (Abridged) will be available February 19th via Slender Means Society/Marriage (pre-order your copy here). The album also includes a DVD “featuring seven promotional films, blood draw documentation, live performances, & other ephemera.”

Los Campesinos! Aren’t Scots. They’re from Wales.

They met in Wales, at University. None of them are Welsh.
