Punk is dead. Rock is dead. Hip-hop is, well a strange beast. Regardless the genre, it's easy to argue that things have changed. And for those who cannot fathom accepting change, especially within the music world, I feel bad for all of the great artists you're missing out on.
Anyways, enough bullshitting. Michael Parallax is taking a modern-day spin on what was once known as folk-music. Check his latest two releases under his solo path (as opposed to saes), 'Growing Splendid' and 'Grand.' At the risk of being lazy here, I'll let the titles do the heavy lifting of how I feel about these two. Gorgeous music paired with pensive lyrics.
