i don't like describing bands by using comparisons to other bands, so i'll just say that Rosetta is amazing. they achieve the perfect balance of pretty and loud, devastating and uplifting. i saw them last July in a tiny venue in chicago and talked to them before they played. they're really interesting, really brilliant, down to earth guys. unfortunately, they only tour during the summer, as Mike Armine, the vocalist, is a teacher.
anyway, here are a few of my favourites of theirs:
Red In Tooth And Claw
Je N'en Connais Pas La Fin
Bump because these guys are amazing.
oh my god, finally! a year later and someone actually posts in here after i started the thread.
have you ever seen them live?
Unfortunately they haven't toured near me since I discovered them, but they are one of a few bands is go out of my way to see
Don't know how I missed this thread the first time around. These guys are amazing.
I was lucky enough to see them in 2010 but the opening bands (mostly local) played too long so they had to cut their set short. They only played 3 songs but I'd be damned if it wasn't amazing. I hope to see them again someday but they don't tour the west coast often.
they were originally going to be recording a new EP this winter, but Sandy completely destroyed the studio where they were scheduled. not sure if they've found somewhere else or if they've stamped down a time, but i have my fingers crossed.
