LISTEN: The Wailing Wall’s Debut Single, “Bones Become Rainbows”

The Wailing Wall, a project of New York-based instrumentalist Jesse Rifkin, has released the first single, "Bones Become Rainbows," from its anticipated new record, The Low Hanging Fruit. The album will be released on June 8 on JDub Records.

The outfit's first record, Hospital Blossoms, released for free in 2008 on the JDub Records website, was downloaded over 15,000 times. That project landed Jesse live spots on MTVU, WNYC Soundcheck, WFMU and Fearless Music TV. The newest comes as a result of Rifkin's collaboration with ANTI- recording artist Tim Fite, who guided the recording process. Over the course of recording, they traveled to a barn in Columbia, New Jersey, a high school auditorium in Blairstown, New Jersey, Fite's studio in Brooklyn and the memorial chapel at Wesleyan University to get that well-traveled sound. The Wailing Wall will be touring with Fite and playing a one-off show at The Troubadour with Avi Buffalo on May 1.
