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).

NOW IS NO TIME TO QUIT

It's been a tough several weeks for those who care about the truth: Congress, the FBI, and the judiciary are seemingly more concerned with providing cover for a foregone conclusion than with uncovering facts.

But we also saw something incredibly powerful: that truth-tellers don't quit, and that speaking up is contagious. I hope you'll read why, even now, we believe the truth will prevail—and why we aren't giving up on our goal of raising $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall, even though there's a long way to go to get there. Please help close the gap with a tax-deductible donation today.
