CONTEST – Cale Parks @ The El Mocambo – August 24, 2009
Noah KalinaCale Parks makes what you could accurately call “80s-influenced electro-pop”, but not in the sense that it’s usually used these days. With Parks, you won’t find throwbacks to the radio-friendly side of the ’80s, with its fat synth textures and neon-infused aesthetic, but instead a more austere and detached approach. One that deftly balances acoustic and electronic instruments and wraps them around melodies that are heartfelt but still reserved – like a stiff, extended-arm hug.
Parks has just released a new EP in To Swift Mars and is coming to town on August 24 for a show at the El Mocambo with Lemonade. And courtesy of Rootmeansquare and Polyvinyl Records, I’ve got two prize packs to give away consisting of a pair of passes to the show and a copy of To Swift Mars on CD. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Cale Parks” in the subject line and your full name and mailing address in the body. Contest will close at midnight, August 20.
