John Parish - "LSB/End Titles" (Stream) (PopMatters Premiere)
"LBS/End Titles" is an atmospheric piece that works just as well accompanying a film as it does a daydream in your head.
John Parish's upcoming album Screenplay, which compiles some of his soundtrack work, seems like a natural project for the accomplished multi-instrumentalist producer, especially to anyone who has appreciated the vivid, visual quality of his collaborations with PJ Harvey. Originally appearing in the Dutch film Little Black Spiders, "LBS/End Titles", premiering on PopMatters, is an atmospheric piece that works just as well accompanying a film as it does a daydream in your head. With steadily building synths interlaced with deliberate guitar patterns and touches of glockenspiel, it's mood music that is equally well suited for paying close attention to or having on in the background.
John Parish's Screenplay will be released on April 16, via Thrill Jockey.
