Parker Lewis is a Swedish pop artist who has been traveling outside his home country for some time now, now holing up in New York City for a few months. He just released Written & Directed By Parker Lewis on Cloudberry Records. A wonderful melding of that sentimental, heart-warming, utterly sincere Swedish pop aesthetic and this old-fashioned folksy rock style. It’s like Jens Lekman mixed with the eccentricity of Wayne Coyne or Peter Bjorn & John song recorded by the Beach Boys circa 1966. Absolutely wonderful, absolutely a joy, absolutely what will keep you warm as we drift into fall and only want everything to come to life again.
