Ezza Rose // Laura Palmer's Death Parade

"In their second life, the songs on When the Water's Hot have a folk vulnerability as their skeleton, but they're veined, muscled, and skinned by sultry tones of bluesy guitar, minimal pulsing percussion, and subtle cello melodies. The album achieves the same level of sparse intimacy as Rose's past work, but the new electric arrangements discreetly strengthen the songs." -Portland Mercury

"Laura Palmer's Death Parade is led by singer-songwriter Laura Hopkins. Her musical inspirations span from Patsy Cline to Black Sabbath, and the songs have a dark edge to them, with brutally honest lyrics, yet Laura's live performance holds a kind of mesmerizing beauty." -Travel Portland
