The Electric Soft Parade are masters of reinvention. If you trace your favourite artists there can be said to be two groups, those who peddle and stick to a sound you love (think Oasis, the Strokes, Abba, – for example) and those that constantly twist and turn your perceptions of them and push their own abilities as performers and writers, whilst still somehow never losing their own inimitable traits (think Robert Wyatt, The Flaming Lips, Super Furry Animals). With ‘No Need To Be Downhearted’ the Electric Soft Parade root themselves as firmly in the latter category.It’s 2007 and the White Brothers are in further ascent, but this time in a different mode and solely on their own terms. Working with friends at Truck Records and fellow colleagues in the US at Better Looking Records, the music is rolling. The tail end of 2005 saw 'The Human Body' EP (Truck/BLR) released, and the critics loved it, but it was just a taster.
