Rykarda Parasol

Our Hearts First Meet

2006-08-07

Inspired by personal life experiences, Rykarda Parasol unleashes a solid follow-up to the well-received EP, "Here She Comes", released in 2003. "Our Hearts First Meet" features performances by Colleen Brown (Pale Saints), Rich Douthit (the Drift), Jeffrey Luck Lucas, and Neil Busch (...Trail of Dead). Rykarda has been compared to Nick Cave, Nico and the Velvet Underground, PJ Harvey, Siouxsie Sioux, and Johnny Cash. – Ben Kleine "The songs are moody, vampish noir tales; David Lynch would need just one listen to Parasol's eerie delivery to draft them as the house band on his next film project.” – SplendidEZine.com 8. instrumental 11. "nigger" 14. instrumental
