Parker Paul Wingfoot

Eccentric singer/songwriter Parker Paul announced his twisted muse to the world with his Lemon-Lime debut, a beautiful, low key affair that highlighted his desert dry wit, hooky piano playing and nasally, off-key voice. It was a really good album, due to the fact that Paul's left field lyrical observations were so sharp. Now following it up, Wingfoot is a bit of a disappointment. All the elements remain in place, but the quirky hooks are less abundant, and the lyrical gems less polished. Without them, his whiny vocalising is even less likely to find an appreciative audience.
