Sam Cook-Parrott writes songs like William Carlos Williams writes poems. "Cut Your Bangs," "Fireworks," "Down Again" all work in sharp images punctuated by a seemingly singular emotion, used as a lens to examine some complex feelings. Even long after he moved on from solo bedroom recordings to a full band (Jon Rybicki on bass, Jeff Bolt on drums, and Cynthia Schemmer on guitar/vocals), Radiator Hospital's punk-flecked power-pop songs are remarkably intimate miniatures perfectly punctuated, often in two minutes or less.
