Group Rhoda is an artist that I seem to have criminally overlooked over the years, probably due to confusion over the name. Not a group at all, this is the artistic vehicle of Oakland-based Mara Barenbaum – with a catalogue three great albums to date. The fact that these have been released by such amazing labels as Night School, Not Not Fun and Dark Entries should be reason enough to pay attention. Following the the 2017 album on the latter, Group Rhoda is returning with another album this week, called Passing Shades. Listen to the haunting melody of “This Flame”, which sits perfectly in the current aesthetic of Dark Entries.
