Album Review

Arliss Parker is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Chris Parker, who moved from Colorado to Brooklyn in the fall of 2006 and created this music in a converted darkroom. Appropriate to that setting, it is a group of hushed, calm, instrumental tracks featuring deliberately picked guitar arpeggios set against repetitive patterns played on toy keyboards, and simple percussion that includes glockenspiel, plus some atmospheric sounds. Parker sometimes runs the tape backwards, the better to create odd effects, but the music never becomes disturbing. At times, it sounds unfinished (as if waiting for a melody line and vocals), but it never loses its modest charm.

Customer Reviews


Listening to this album in its entirety you are taken to another place. I absolutely love it!

i recommend you take this trip

put your headphones on. close your eyes and listen. great stuff Arliss.

Great Music

This album is absolutely great. The only bad thing is that I wish there were more than just 6 songs. If you like Explosions in the Sky and The Postal Service, you'll like this too.
