AUDIO: A Crushed Rose – “2017 – 2019”
A Crushed Rose is an experimental ambient project of Alisa Rodriguez’s, who is known both as Apollo Vermouth and for being vocalist/guitarist of Operations. She has a new EP out under ACR, consisting of recordings from the late 2010’s. These five tracks are pensive in mood with cascading sonic layers. “The Right Kind of Dumb” is an ambient techno track containing obfuscated effects that sound like a massive factory. The fourth track is a gargantuan odyssey that spans forty minutes long! This body of work could suit a surrealist mindfuck but also a dark skyscape daydream. It’s a wonderful release from A Crushed Rose, and we look forward to what Alisa Rodriguez does next.
