J. William Parker, a totally unknown folk singer from Hanoi, Vietnam, is the culmination of a rich lineage of home-recorded acid folk. Parker starts out this record with the track "Rope Around My Neck," which despite only being a minute and a half, is filled with a muffled, smoky atmosphere. Once you hear Parker start to sing, accompanied by an acoustic guitar, the sound suddenly carries you away with the ambience of it's chilly digital reverb. His songs are calm, romantic and warm but heavy with feeling of resignation. You can hear influences from '70s acid folk and acoustic blues, apparent on tracks like his uniquely crafted cover of "Here My Train Is Coming" by Jimi Hendrix. Other instrumental cuts like "The Shadowmen" and "Instrumental Number One" invoke a sense of nostalgia within the listener with their sweet melodies. Fans of Nick Drake, Bert Jansch, and Ted Lucas, will enjoy the essence of modern, home-recorded, loner, acid folk captured on this record.
