- Words: Patric Fallon
Brooklyn sound sculptor Dale Parsons is Parsod, a beatsmith interested in spacey soundscapes, dissected hip-hop grooves, and thoughtful bass rumblings. His first offering of that sort is a self-titled, four-track EP, from which "Parade" is taken. As the EP's lead song, "Parade" takes no time getting started. Disjointed rhythms, 8-bitty sound effects, arpeggiating synth melodies, and all kinds of floating cosmic transmissions launch into the forefront within in seconds of hitting play, and are over seemingly just as quickly. If the brief excursion perks your ears up without fully satiating your appetite for intergalactic sonics, you can find out what the rest of his blippy beat explorations sounds like over on his SoundCloud profile, where all of Parsod is available to stream.
