Editors’ Notes Sin, salvation, fire, and brimstone haunt every nook and cranny of The Very Last Day. Raised in the Pentecostal church, Oklahoman Parker Millsap infuses his mix of rockabilly, folk, and blues with the power of the Holy Spirit. With its searing fiddles and swinging rhythms, the Tulsa sound-inspired “Hands Up” breathes pure fire. Meanwhile, the rollicking “Hades Pleades” is a smoke-spewing locomotive headed straight for the underworld. An ecstatic vocalist, Millsap turns in an especially soulful performance on a country-informed rendition of Mississippi Fred McDowell’s spiritual “You Gotta Move.”
