Parker Millsap (from the album Wilderness Within You available on Okrahoma Records/Thirty Tigers) (by Bryant Liggett
Parker Millsap has a cool, Indie Rock Folk thing going in his music. He’s a dude digging into a lot, playing Blues and singer-songwriter Folk, all in a singular package that is doing its own thing. His latest release in, Wilderness Within You, is a concise package of the aforementioned styles, a collection of vast influences with Millsap claiming each as his own. It is killer record.
He dips into dreamy Psych-Folk in album opener “By and By” before laying down gentle and totally catchy Folk for “Finding Out”, a cut whose beauty lies in its overall simplicity. He dips into some plucky Blues in “Front Porchin’ ’” which is an anthemic score for any front porch hang as he sings ‘I got a marijuana cigarette, and a can of beer’. The front porch is sometimes where the real party is at.
“Keeping the Love Alive” is beautiful and dramatic, “Running On Time” has wonderful picking, “So Far Apart” is wonderful in its weird and catchy pulse, and the closer goes straight to the heart of Americana, with Gillian Welch guesting on “Wilderness Within You”. Oklahoma’s always had cool musical things happening, and Millsap live right up to its cool, under the radar indie reputation. Blues, subtle twang and casual Pop is all on the menu on his latest.
