Urban Organic: The National Parcs

Posted by Kim / June 9, 2007

20070609_thenationalparcs2.jpgNature has never sounded so good. On Wednesday this week, The National Parcs (here too) launched their first album, Timbervision, at Usine C. Vincent Letellier (also known as Freeworm), Chimwemwe Miller and Ian Cameron have come back to the Montreal music scene with this album and a sound that is uniquely organically urban.

The trio first seem an unlikely group. Hailing from opposite ends of the country, as well as the world, their backgrounds create a musical juxtaposition that bounces harmoniously. Cameras, microphones and hip hop merge with forests, lakes and the thump of canoe bottoms. The rhythm of stones hitting stones plays with the groove of splitting trees with the beat of the intelligent lyrics sung. The album, which is really as visual as it is audio, becomes the sound of a city gone wild – literally.
20070609_thenationalparcs1.jpgThe launch itself was a reflection of an album. Held at Usine C, the majority of the action took place outside. Amidst children playing in the grass, people sipping wine and others gulping beer were television screens on the ground showing the DVD portion of the album and speakers in the bushes pumping out the beat of the CD. On a warm summer evening, there couldn’t have been a better place to launch this album.

There really isn’t any better music to host your next outdoor, summer party to. Quick-moving and smooth hip hop to the beat of the forest makes a perfect city soundtrack when you want a bit of that cool country escapism.

In fact, corrupt societies are breeding grounds for such
activity. Must be familiar with Email & Internet research.
During your research, you may decide to purchase some surgical
masks to protect yourself, but you're not sure which
masks are appropriate.
