Music Review: “Rubble” by Ambrosia Parsley


TRACK 2

“Rubble”

From Ambrosia Parsley‘s Weeping Cherry

BARBES

Liner notes: This eerie ballad finds the former Shivaree leader consumed by existential dread, with droning guitar amplifying the creeping terror.

Behind the music: Weeping Cherry, Parsley’s solo debut, was inspired by the deaths of friends and relatives, and features AA Bondy and Joan Wasser (from Joan As Police Woman).

Check it out if you like: Angsty grown-up pop (Sam Phillips, Jenny Lewis, Neko Case).
