Hurray for the Riff Raff (aka the Bronx-born, New Orleans–based singer/songwriter Alynda Segarra) said “Rhododendron” is about “finding rebellion in plant life,” continuing:
Being called by the natural world and seeing the life that surrounds you in a way you never have. A mind expansion. A psychedelic trip. A spiritual breakthrough. Learning to adapt, and being open to the wisdom of your landscape. Being called to fix things in your own backyard, your own community.
Life on Earth is Segarra’s first Hurray for the Riff Raff record since 2017’s The Navigator. Last year, they, along with Waxahatchee and Bedouine, formally released a cover of Big Star’s “Thirteen.”
