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).

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
