Monk Parker Announces Sophomore ALbum
Monk Parker‘s probably one of Austin’s best kept secrets, though I hope it doesn’t stay that way, especially after hearing this brand new single. It falls in the world where Clem Snide and Jeff Mangum end upwriting true Western ballads. The musical accompaniment is truly leaps and bounds above other like-minded acts, and there’s this fragility in Parker’s voice that fits perfectly into the genre of balladeers. I feel like this is one of those songs that will leave a mark on your soul, haunting you in the way only the best music can. Give it a listen, and stay tuned for Crown of Sparrows on August 4th via Grand Jury.
