Rose Windows 'Rose Windows' (album stream)
Published Apr 29, 2015Rose Windows had promised us a few months ago that they were all set to deliver some more of their "insufferable psychedelic garbage" as a self-titled LP. Forget that self-deprecating dig, though, as it's now time for you to decide how the record stacks up. A full-length album stream has gone up online ahead of the record's May 5 release through Sub Pop.
As previously reported, the Seattle combo cut the record with Randall Dunn (Six Organs of Admittance, Sunn O))), the Cave Singers). Together, they've produced a nine-song set mining various vintage rock textures. "Blind" features a laid-back, funk-and-country appeal similar to Seed of Memory-period Terry Reid. "A Pleasure to Burn" is particularly desert-fried and is full of spacious wails, campfire guitar and rattlesnake percussion. "The Old Crow," meanwhile, is a guns-raised anthem with bluesy, Wild Turkey-drenched vocals and a few Dr. Who-styled synth lines.
