Deantoni Parks is a machine.

Even when he’s on vacation. Or recently, when he couldn’t return home to Newnan for Thanksgiving, he was working. He feels badly about it, but not really. He knows he’s an artist and understands the sacrifices necessary to succeed — especially in 2013.

“It was such a crazy climb for me, but I understand what it takes,” Parks said. “Most people aren’t willing to get there. I’m amazed that I’m here. That’s how difficult I feel like it is, because I see what I’ve sacrificed.

“Most guys my age have tons of kids. And I love family, I love kids. But I’m an artist. That’s the reality of it. I’m interwoven in something that controls everything I do. Being an artist controls every decision I make, even when it turns out to be the wrong decision. I’m driven that hard.”

Lately it seems like the musical world has been caught in a loop of sorts; while bands may vary their sounds to some extent, certain instruments and chord progressions are trendier than ever. But then there’s Henry Kohen, or as he’s known as on the musical front, Mylets. His big debut album is called Retcon, and with complete honesty, it’s quite possibly one of the greatest albums of 2013 so far.

So what makes Retcon so good? With a sound partly reminiscent of Jay Reatard or Cap’n Jazz, it’s not hard to understand why it’s receiving so much praise. Mylets is unique however. Just because you sound like one band doesn’t mean you are that band, and Henry Kohen makes sure to make full use of his talent. Each song is carefully constructed and features some complex, math-rocky melodies, a heavy dosage of effect-pedals, and hard hitting vocals (lyrically and then some). On top of that? The guy does it all with some discretion, balancing each piece and making it fit right into its place.
