RICHARD REED PARRY – QUIET RIVER OF DUST VOL. 2

Posted in: What's New | No Comments | Posted on by Grumpy

The first volume of Quiet River of Dust was released on the autumn equinox of 2018; this second volume, out on the summer solstice of 2019, was created at the same time.

Both volumes bleed into one another, by design. “It feels like a multi-sided window to me,” says Parry, “a different view into this prismatic song world.” Japanese folk myths, death poems and British folk music are tributaries flowing into a river of late‐20th century avant‐garde composition and traditional song craft, written and performed by a member of a Grammy‐winning rock band.

This is a meditative, widescreen musical experience with Beach Boy harmonies and a hypnotic pulse. Layered songs that move in a linear fashion, following a current rather than circular composition.
