A Side: How Many Times

B Side: I Couldn’t Stand It

The Invincibles are one of my personal favorite artists available in the Parkers inventory. If you aren’t familiar, this month’s 45 will give you a good look at what they are all about. Pure, soulful, and catchy are three adjectives that immediately come to my mind. This group just writes flat out good tunes. Although these two tracks deal with the hardships of relationships, the instrumentals alone are worth listening to if you can’t find yourself relating to the lyrics.
