I adore Indie bands. After spending over a year in indie haven/mecca Portland, OR, what can you expect? The other day I stumbled across a new, well new to me, duo from Raleigh, NC, called The Rosebuds on Amazon’s MP3 site as a freebie single. I was instantly smitten.
Second Bird of Paradise is one of the singles from their new album Loud Planes Fly Low and I have to say I adore it. It’s hypnotic, sensual, and mesmerizing. Although the album appears after the divorce of band members Ivan and Kelly, it doesn’t have all the breakup album cliches. I hope I will see it on NPR’s list pretty soon.
