You probably know the Her Parents drill by now - thrashy punk, shouting of obtuse lyrics, all over in double quick time. 76 seconds this time, and it's about what it says in the title after a fashion, only with a little less shouting and, dare we say, a little more of a melody the postman can whistle. Second album Happy Birthday (currently streaming via DIY) is out May 13th on vinyl, a week later digitally, via Alcopop!, features songs called Why Are You Hitting Yourself and Hollow Out A Horse, and as it all fits on one side of a 12" they've put its predecessor Physical Release in the flip. Can't say fairer deal than that.
