Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Patrick Park returns with a new full-length, Here/Gone. For Here/Gone, Park tapped producer Rob Schnapf (Beck, Kurt Vile, Elliott Smith) for the first time since 2007's acclaimed Everyone's in Everyone, and the pair distilled Park's introspective folk songs to classic voice and guitar combinations highlighted with string arrangements by Bobby Halvorson (Van Dyke Parks). With the sparse production allowing Park's lyrics to remain front-and-center, the tracks on Here/Gone materialize as letters to his newborn son and aural reckonings with the brevity of life. Rolling Stone Country calls the lead single, "Everything Falls Apart," "an Elliott Smith-worthy folksong."
Additionally, Billboard recently premiered album standout, "Love Lover Love," which features guest vocals from Warpaint's Emily Kokal and was recently featured as KCRW's Today's Top Tune.
