Parker Gispert – Through The Canvas


Analee here with my DJ pick of the week from Parker Gispert. You may recognize him as the guitarist of the Whigs, but Gispert has branched out into his own solo effort with the release of Sunlight Tonight.

Produced and mixed by Emery Dobyn, the eight-song debut finds Gispert, known for leading the Whigs through raw and jangly southern-garage rave-ups, taking a decidedly different musical approach—biting electric guitar riffs are cast out in favor of gentle acoustic picking and strumming, and his band mates’ raucous rhythms are traded in for minimal accompaniment that includes light bass and drums, orchestral strings and even trumpet.

Listen to the single “Through The Canvas” below and let us know what you think!
