Mas Rapido!: Pity Party (Parasol)
release: February 6, 2007
style: indie rock, indie pop
rating: ****

Pity Party is just what it sounds like. The band formerly known as Toothpaste 2000 (only one of the best names ever) wrote a record about being unloved, broken-hearted, sad, lonely and depressed. And they really pile it on through the 15 tracks, song after song. Happily, they have the hand-clapping songcraft to go with that, channeling and paying tribute to the Kinks, Teenage Fanclub and Neil Young. Fun times. -Kenyon
