Parsonsfield: On Borders, Real and Imagined

Email a Friend
Parsonsfield's new album 'Blooming Through the Black' is out Friday.

The five-piece group Parsonsfield is based in western Massachusetts. Its music draws on both the string bands of Appalachia as well as anthemic rock. The band's new single, “Barbed Wire,” is about the closing of the prairie and, maybe, the closing of a few minds—with pleasant overtones about the destruction of the planet. Parsonsfield’s suggestively-titled new album Blooming Through the Black is just out, and the band joined us to play and talk about, among other things, why telephone "killed" the radio...or didn't.
