“Threadbare” is the latest single off the Portland, Oregon-based act, Sassparilla, and after playing it a number of times, I couldn’t help but admire it’s amiable charm. To me, it sounds a lot like it could be part of the soundtrack for a quirky, independent romantic comedy – as though the song could have been in the background as the movie’s couple meets. Or as though it could have been on AM radio back in the 1970s. I’ve played the track a number of times – as I often do – and it’s incredibly catchy.

This track appears on Sassparilla’s newest album, Magpie which Fluff and Gravy Records released back on October 23rd.
