TYLER PARKFORD describes his music as 'Baroque/Chamber psych-bedroom-pop' or 'micro-fidelity bedroom psych-freak-beat-pop' and listening to "Killer Jist", his second home-brewed album, you will surely agree that this is a pretty good decription... I hear a clear THE BEATLES (Revolver/Sgt. Pepper era) and late BEACH BOYS/BRIAN WILSON influence and that surely isn't a bad thing!
Q: Where exactly are you from?
A: Long Beach, California.
Q: How recorded? (At home/equipment...)?
A: Recorded with old mics from 1970's portable reel-to-reel recorders, dumped and ground into Garage Band.
Q: Who involved? Who played what?
A: I wrote, performed, and recorded everything, with the exception of the violin parts on Vacancy, which was performed by this kid Dan Orf.
Q: Any official releases? If so, label, record nr.?
A: No official releases, though side band MINI MANSIONS has an EP on iTunes that's up for grabs (from Avatar, an online publisher).
Q: Since when are you into music?
A: Since I quit piano in 8th grade.
Q: Any previous bands?
A: Only odd-ball punk bands in boarding school (The Mess / Romulus)
Q: How'd you "label" your music?
A: Baroque/Chamber psych-bedroom-pop.
A: R. Stevie Moore. (Home taping pioneer and DIY musician; read info from wikipedia here!)
Q: Website, myspace?
Q: Anything that you think is interesting, that you'd like to inform the blog readers about...
A: Home-recording, to me, is like dancing with myself in a small cheap room, but I know there's a room outside.
