EDITORS’ NOTES

Sin, salvation, fire, and brimstone haunt every nook and cranny of The Very Last Day. Raised in the Pentecostal church, Oklahoman Parker Millsap infuses his mix of rockabilly, folk, and blues with the power of the Holy Spirit. With its searing fiddles and swinging rhythms, the Tulsa sound-inspired “Hands Up” breathes pure fire. Meanwhile, the rollicking “Hades Pleades” is a smoke-spewing locomotive headed straight for the underworld. An ecstatic vocalist, Millsap turns in an especially soulful performance on a country-informed rendition of Mississippi Fred McDowell’s spiritual “You Gotta Move.”

Worth the listen

I stumbled upon Parker Millsap at SXSJ on Wednesday and was instantly awestruck! He gave an incredible performance and had people dancing in the crowd; it was truly a beautiful sight. I have listened to the album so many times since and I'm so in love with his sound. This album is just really fantastic. Stop hesitating by reading reviews and BUY IT ALREADY!

Heaven Sent!

I heard these guys at SXSW last weekend and have been waiting all week for this release! Love their passion, raw emotion and enormous talent!! Being a happily married gay recovering son of a fundamentalist preacher, I'm kind of a target demographic. Even though I'm usually drawn more to the NIN or QOTSA end of the music spectrum, Parker rings my bell!

Absolutely Fantastic

I love Parker Millsap and I think this album shows his continued growth as a songwriter. If you get a chance to see him live, do it. He puts his heart and soul into his music.
