Free Friday: Ian C. Parker - "Somebody Else"

Nashville indie-folk singer-songwriter Ian C. Parker recently released his new album, Somebody Else as a free download via his Bandcamp page ahead of its official CD release on October 15th with Wax Zion Records.  The album, recorded in warm analog is the follow-up to his highly-acclaimed album, Push The Child.  The eight-song album is a great mix of solo acoustic folk numbers with fractured rhythms and affecting vocals mixed with rollicking early Wilco-like full band songs.
Standout tracks include the loping beat and jangly guitars of “Forty Hour Dreams” and the title track, “Somebody Else” with its forceful acoustic guitar rhythm, folk-inspired narrative and haunting, noisy electric guitar outbursts.  Also, the reverb-rich “Either/Or”, which is not an Elliot Smith cover, stands out as well with shuffling drums and catchy, psychedelic-laced melodies.
