Philly based songwriter Sam Cook-Parrot, who leads poppy DIY scene faves Radiator Hospital, recently sat down with Space Jam Sessions to play a couple songs acoustically in front of filmmaker Allison Newbold’s trademark fisheye lens. He leads off with a brand new song, “Absent Year,” which has a nice Ryan Adams thing going on, a contemplative gentle strummer with hints of classic Nashville, though filtered through Parrot’s husky high-register voice. Also performed was a slowed-down version of “You Call That a Kiss,” which appears in a speedier punkier version on Radiator Hospital’s 2012 EP Can You Feel My Heart Beating? Check out both videos below.
