Google+ Beathearts: Martin Parks - Thankful for sound


Martin Parks - Thankful for sound

Cover art has always been important to me. It's not crucial but it's an important factor to discover the record, for the decision to buy it and to keep it on the shelves/in the phone. Everyone that has ever been diggin' crates know what I'm talking about.

I think Chicago duo Martin Parks (Jaquee Hammond and Roman Lee) would agree. Either way they've put together a beautiful cover for the first (?) album Thankful for sound. Fortunately the album is just as great. I only discovered the Chicago production duo this week due to the fact that they produced Rob Milton's Love story that we covered earlier today.

I've never been a fan of Kanye West's music but I liked his approach coming into the game. Turning away from stereotypes and opening up new sources of musical inspiration. This album has exactly that sound that I wish that Kanye's albums would have. A unique sound, thoughtful lyrics, diversity and the package is tight from start to finish. Impressive indeed. And as a bonus it's available for free download over at their bandcamp.

The whole album is a keeper but my takeaway track off the album is Inspiration. Get it below!
