ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"More than a line of teas or the 16th President, Pat Parra is honest. With his debut record Stages, he lays bare all his feelings, insecurities, loves, and hates for all to hear, for better or for worse. He goes so far as to use his mortifying third grade yearbook photo for the cover. The album is an eclectic amalgamation of bedroom and bathroom recordings encompassing everything from falsetto to freestyle, acoustic strums to electrobeats. In “Bike Riding,” Parra confesses his love for a bank teller with the most charming of hooks. He swiftly moves from the butterflies of blossoming love to that sinking feeling in your stomach when you know things are over in “Bitch Cheated.” When he’s said all he wants to say, he covers Jeff Buckley’s “Jewel Box” oh so delicately. Pat Parra offers his everything in this record with no front, genuinely beautiful and fun, like the man himself."
Mesh Magazine by Bryan Derballa of lovebryan.com

"Love, heartbreak, bike riding, tofu… is there more to life? Really?! Pat Parra sums it all up on this wonderful disc. Fans of the recent Why? releases will appreciate this emotionally heavy, acoustic guitar driven and incredibly funny/wry/sardonic album from the guitar playing/singing/rapping Pat Parra. often displays emo-hop sensibilities…and even has a beat boxing track, some dj cuts, a couple nice beats from Caveman and Fayez…" P-Minus of truehiphop.com

PATO PARRA {el papa}

Love you my son,me gusta mucho tus creaciones ,Vivan los PARRASSSSS
Every song is about my sons life,viva la musica

ehhhLeez!

story tellin, hiphoppin, raw experience
For me Pat Parra's album was like waking up from a sleep full of dreams wonderful, happy, sad, traveling, moving and then back again home comfortable, ANGRY, sweet, and its fun. So creative, so much fun. jeff buckley cover is spectacular! I would highly recommend that you take part in the adventure if you feel at all inclined!

buy it for the cover, love it for the songs
I'm not very good at writing reviews or writing in general, but I just want to say that this CD is pretty damn cool. Consistently entertaining. I say consistently for 2 reasons: (1) it entertained me from start to finish (2) it entertains me each time I listen to it (I've listened to it about 13 times so far). I wish I could better explain why you should buy it, but I can't. Just buy it and you'll be a better person.

One chicken for Blond Asian Girl. One chicken for Spicy Hair Pictures. One chicken for Call Me Baby. One chicken for the succinct and clever poetry of Hunter's Song (informed by his most true talent which is dancing, I mean rapping.) One chicken for Jewel Box because dare I say it and actually mean it, Pat has a prettier and more vulnerable and more honest voice than even Jeff Buckley.

5 Chickens, I mean Stars.

Very Innovative and FANTASTIC!!
Pat Parra has created a very clever musical CD that keeps your interest until the very last spoken word. I LOVE the way he has added voice messages between songs to tie everything together. Although I love the way he puts his raps together, his songwriting is heartfelt with catchy and addictive melodies. GREAT JOB!! I'm proud to be Pat's mom; he is such a creative spirit in his own right. I can't wait until the next one!!

Great album! I enjoyed it quite a bit. A really strong debut from Pat Parra. The album is a mixture of hip-hop with some really beautiful acoustic songs. Anyone who’s into both genres should pick it up. You really won't be disappointed. Key tracks (in my opinion) Tofu song, call me baby, hot Asian girl and Hunter's song. Those four tracks alone are worth the 12 bucks. I will definitely be on the look out for the follow up to this.
