Automobility

Artist: Michael Parrish
Title: Automobility
Label: Geographic Records


It's easy to see why Michael's gotten himself a few cuts (and scrapes) already. This here's a very clean production of the dirty aspects of this life.

'Code of the Road' country-rocks on about the struggles of walking and living on the road. The electric guitar kicks in under this fine voice. Simplistic yet clever choruses like 'get out of here like an arrow bowed / blow off some steam lighten my load / I've got so many memories / my head will explode / I can make 'em die by living by / the code of the road' really make the album.

It's not exactly a country album. Each song puts you into a different mind scan. For instance, I find 'Elena' much like the start of 'American Pie' or maybe one of the bluer ballads by the Boss himself. Voice, piano and acoustic guitar gives this song a sweetness that makes it stand out from the rest of the album.

'The World's First Song' is a lovely idea that has a very Dylan-ish construction. Just one man and his guitar; a sad existence that somehow finds a way to plod on. If not for singing and a few strings to pluck, how would any of us tolerate the world for 14 seconds? Even the words will make you think you're Blonde on Blonde - 'I'm sure the world's first song / went on and on and on / and on and on and on and on / I'm sure the world's first song / went on and on and on'. A good song to sit on the back porch with. The neighbors won't mind.

If you're into folk or country or just an album's worth of soul fodder which says something to the parts of you hurtin', listen to Michael.
