The boiled down brother to their 30 song magnum opus Never Hear the End of It, Parallel Play is the latest from power pop royalty Sloan. Less a conscious answer to NHTEOI's unabridged creative approach, Parallel Play is a continuation of the musical concepts put forth on their last album and a further exploration of the band's four-songwriter dynamic. A term taken from the science of developmental psychology, Parallel Play is a behavior seen in young children in which they enjoy independent activities in the company of other children, something the four boys in Sloan know a lot about. As per their unique musical modus operandi, the members of Sloan wrote songs independently and then joined forces in the studio to produce yet another album of timeless, guitar-driven pop. For Sloan, Parallel Play proves once again that four times the songwriters equals four times the rock.
