Mara Barenbaum aka Group Rhoda has a new album on the way.
Titled Passing Shades, the eight-track record marks the Oakland-based electronic producer’s second solo album on label Dark Entries, and this is the third time Barenbaum has collaborated with the label previously on the Max & Mara LP ‘Less Ness’ in 2013 and the Group Rhoda LP ‘Wilderless’ in 2017.
The album finds her exploring the metaphysics of loss and the transient essence of the material world. Stylistically, Barenbaum pairs synthesiser-laden symphonics, four-to-the-floor inflections, and cosmic musings with her striking tones.
You can pre-order Passing Shades now via Dark Entries, and get a glimpse of the LP with the lead track ‘This Flame’ streaming below.
