Published Jun 11, 2013The Roseville Band hail from a small city in the north of Wales, but they're making some headway here in Canada thanks to a deal with the Winnipeg label Pipe & Hat. Temper is due out on June 25, and as the band hit the road for a Canadian tour, you can stream the whole album on Exclaim.ca.
A press release draws comparisons to folk and rock acts like Neil Young, the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and the Band, Wilco, and Fleet Foxes. That said, the band's third album "[brings] a more aggressive and alternative slant to their music."
You'll hear this in the blast of guitars and thundering drums that heralds the title cut and the surge of choppy, overdriven strumming that anchors the urgent "She's in Love." The band calm things during the album's second half, as "The Bus Home" features warm organ textures and "Waiting for You" is a hushed lullaby.
