„Spread the word, get this artist known,“ it said today over at Love Shack, Baby. And the artist in question is The Parade Schedule with the album Seeds To Be Planted, Trees To Be Cut. But to give proper credit – what a surprise – Slowcoustic was the one who discovered the band a month ago. And now, as I bought my digital copy of the album just today, it clearly is my turn to “spread the word” about this fantastic music, you may not be aware of yet. The man behind the moniker is Matt Kinder and he recorded a very nice, sad and deliberate folk album with singer-songwriter and country influences. Acoustic guitar, cello, glockenspiel, piano and some percussions are the ingredients for a wide range of different sounding tracks. Thousand Oceans for example is a sad ballad with lots of heart, Making A Way a nice alt country tune with more upbeat character while Orchestra is a super lo-fi recording and Fancy Cars comes as a straight forward folk song with only acoustic guitar and vocals. The result of the different styles is a varied record with a nice album structure wherefore it is far away from being boring at any point. But enough words lost, if you are into acoustic folk and folk music at all, you have to buy this album. And don’t get me wrong, this is a command, because The Record Machine offers Seeds To Be Planted, Trees To Be Cut for only 2$! What, 2$? Yes, 2$!! Go. Buy. It. NOW. And now it’s your turn to spread the word.
