The Australians have come good on their promise with a debut album that's cheeky, timeless and devilishly catchy.

That ‘Random Access Memories’ stamp is all over Parcels. Nile Rodgers-inspired riffs brush up against their more obvious influences. And yet, there’s something quite charming, if transitory, about it.

Northern Transmissions

Though Parcels bring a lot tight performances here, their dynamics aren’t wide enough to make up for how familiar this album is.

Watch your limbs suddenly twitch in tandem with the beats, just instinctively surrendering themselves to the urge to dance. Every cell of your body is dancing to this. If you turn this up loud enough, your neighbor will be dancing to this. When you leave the house you might even see your neighbor all flustered trying to desperately shazam the tracks through the door.

Considering that Daft Punk produced a single “Overnight” last year, it was no doubt that part of the inspiration was carried foward to Parcels’ debut. It’s funky, infectious and danceable as all hell! Even the credits are fucking gold!
