It’s a good day for some lived-in country vibes and continuing the crush of new singles is one more look behind the curtain at the upcoming Rose City Band LP. This record is already pretty high on the list for most anticipated of the year and each new single only solidifies that notion. While Ripley and co. have long slowed down the air around cosmic country, embracing the humidity of languorous afternoons, “Mariposa” might capture this more than most in their catalog. The song saunters and sways, a ripple of those liquid strings underpinned by a slow crest of organ. The song stretches out, dips its hat over the eyes and lets the sun soak into every fiber of the listener. If the album isn’t already on your list to pick up, I recommend rectifying that right quick. The new album, Garden Party, is out April 21st from Thrill Jockey.
