Laughing, Gasping is the upcoming effort by Portland trio Wet Confetti, who enlisted Gang of Four’s Dave Allen to help them capture their chiming post-punk sound. Out Feb. 6 on Allen’s Pampelmoose label, Laughing, Gasping has several tremendous song titles, especially if you like all things Jurassic. There’s “Sorry Dinosaur” and “Donuts and Old People,” and the latter’s name “came about after going to a bing parlor and then going to a donut shop,” singer/bassist/keytarist Alberta Poon told SPIN.com. “We were the youngest people in both places by about four decades.”
