Video Title:
Charlie Parr - "Boombox" (Official Music Video)
Description:
Listen to Charlie Parr's “Boombox," from his new album Little Sun. A celebration of each person's unique relationship with music tuned to a honky tonk wall of sound, "Boombox" is alive with energy. Directed and Animated by Kev Craven Purchase/Stream: Smithsonian Folkways: https://folkways.si.edu/charlie-parr/little-sun Bandcamp: https://charlieparrmusic.bandcamp.com/album/little-sun All other platforms: https://orcd.co/charlie-parr-little-sun Over the last couple of decades, Charlie Parr has crisscrossed the world on tour more times than one can count. He also has released over a dozen albums of his songs, acclaimed for their poetic simplicity. Little Sun, his most ambitious album to date, was recorded with Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, Sufjan Stevens, My Morning Jacket) and features Parr augmenting his raw and affecting songs with stunning full-band arrangements. The remarkable backing band here includes Marisa Anderson, Victor Krummenacher, Andrew Borger, and Asher Fulero. Masterfully channeling the philosophical and transcendental qualities of the blues, Parr takes us on a journey through the winding streets of his imagination.
