Parachutes - Discography


Sad news. The band Parachutes has officially announced today they will no longer be playing together. However they have kindly made available for free download, all their music including their new EP 'Tree Roots'. In the words of the band themselves . . .

Hey everyone,
it was over a year ago that we played our last concert...
since that night we have all been up to a lot of really good things… having babies, making new music, making art exhibitions, traveling, singing in choirs, playing in other bands, and all kinds of mischief…

we wanted to thank you folks for your continued support and kindness.. .but we thought it was also right for us to let you know that we are not playing together anymore. and we have no plans to continue playing together…. NOW, that doesn't mean that we didn't have fun last year touring and having good drunken times together, because those were some amazing times. but we are all excited to keep trying new things and new projects…

so here you can can download (for free!) our two albums and our ep. the first album is from 2003, just called "Parachutes". our second album was recorded on a mountain top castle in italy in 2004. That album is called "Susy", named after the beautiful dog living with us on that mountain. Last is our ep "Tree Roots" made in 2008, recorded in reykjavik iceland, and mixed by jónsi.

thanks again for everything...
hugs,
alex, scott, tinna, thordis, brandan, kari, aaron, bibbi, kristinn...

When I download the Parachutes Tour EP using the link supplied with this sad post, I get a nearly 30mb zip file that is empty. This has happened twice.

I'll miss this band. There Tree Roots ep is soooo good. Thanks for the post!

No problem.
They were offering all their other songs on their myspace except this one.
I love listening to this one and I noticed no-one had a link to it anywhere.
Enjoy!

Victoryrosemusic admin said...

Chris said...

No Problem. It's just a shame I didn't see them in concert before they announced their split. Thanks for mentioning me in the post.

Matt said...

Thanks for posting this and thanks for the blog. Looks like I've got something new to check out!

Oliver said...

Hey, long time lurker here, I have often been turned on to great recordings and such from this site, but never been able to use Rapidshare, as I am from South Africa and Rapidshare thinks that all South Africans have the same IP address :/
I know you cantswitch for one person, but I'd really love the 2nd parachutes download, and Rapidshare simply doesnt work! Anyone able to upload it to megaupload?

- thanks anyway :)

victoryrose said...

Hey Oliver
please email me, (one person is just as important as many! Im happy to upload stuff for you on another provider, im a big fan of sendspace at the moment if thats any good to you)

is the song "where were you" in Tree roots zip file?

I've watched that beautiful adv "Moments" and the song attracted me

their other songs must be great too :D

victoryrose said...

HI Yellowroom, Im not sure in which zip file 'Where were you' is so here is the song on its own :)

Are all the songs supposed to be like 3 minutes? I guess I was just expecting Sigur Ros length, but i just wanted to make sure the files were'nt shortened or something...

victoryrose said...

They are for the most part 'pop song' length :(
I think the main relationship between them and Sigur rós is Alex... not so much musically
I think its a real shame they stopped when they did, Im sure the next album would have been amazing

Mauro Lara said...

Thanks for the albums.
