If there’s a band that embodies the IDGAF attitude of Spanish garage rock, it’s The Parrots. Here’s proof: the Madrid-based trio named their 2015 EP Weed for the Parrots, which isn’t about giving the tropical birds weed, but about the band enjoying the pleasures of good herb. They’re major players in the new wave of Spanish garage, which includes indie darlings like Hinds, as well as groups like Los Nastys and Mujeres. Their work embodies the raw, gritty spirit of some of the genre’s greats, like The Cramps, and reminds us that the scene is still as fun, carefree, and brash as it once was.
