If you haven't been listening to Brittney Denise Parks aka Sudan Archives you've really been missing out. The accomplished violinist and singer is at the forefront of R&B and electronic music, chopping and screwing the guts of each to create a sound that's uniquely all her own. Parks learned to play violin by ear, inspired by the sounds of Sudanese fiddlers. "It's such a serious instrument in a western concert setting," she toldThe Guardian. "But in so many other places in the world it brings the party." That approach to the violin is evident in her music, that's in turn both refined and raucous. Her most recent album, Natural Brown Prom Queen, plays like a message from the future. Opening track "Home Maker" is sensual and epic, propelled by Park's smooth voice and handclaps while "OMG BRITT" is moody, with car-shaking bass, chant-like whispers, and a throbbing beat. Parks is bringing her distinct blend of R&B, hip-hop, and electronic music to Neumos with opener The Growth Eternal. Don't miss this.
