Anders Parker...

I did a post about Anders Parker a while back regarding his excellent album Tell It To The Dust. That album was a testament to the fact that alt-country still had some kick left in it. Filled with folky balladry and some hard rocking it was a great listen. Anders released today an EP of songs that didn't make the cut for Tell It To The Dust. Evidently most of these songs were a little to loud and hard and didn't seem to fit. So here they are on Wounded Astronaut, five songs where he turns the guitar up loud and 1 a bit more along the pensive lines. When Parker really gets going the sound reminds of mid career Husker Du and Soul Asylum when they were good.

Here's 1 from Wounded Astronaut:

Fast And True
