Episode notes

The dramatic new single from Katarra Parson finds the singer/songwriter self-producing alongside a familiar roster of fellow musicians. Together, they explore a tension and release format that delivers dopamine rush after dopamine rush. With Andrew Gibson on drums, Tilton Yokley on bass, Joey Ferber on guitar and Jahi Eskridge on trumpet, “Loathe A Rose” escalates something that begins as an easy, latin, groove-based piano-jazz number into an embattled tango of emotional psychedelia. Somewhere along the way, a vulnerable protagonist steps through a restless soaring ballad to embrace a righteous and powerful sensuality. The sheer aesthetics of it all make this full length debut (the radio edit is two minutes shorter) fly by a lot faster than the eight and a half minutes it actually measures out to.
