If the first track is any indication, this album is going to be heavy, trippy and just plain awesome. On first listen I couldn’t help hearing some Louder Than Love-era Soundgarden riffs and Jane’s Addiction-esque vocals, and it’ll be interesting to seeÂ what other psychedelic twists and turnsÂ this album takes. Take a chance and grab the Loser Edition colored vinyl while it lasts.
Rose Windows began in late 2010 in a house in Seattleâ€™s Central District, where Cheveyo found himself tiring of the limited palette of his prior heavy, post-rock project. Starting with a few rough demos by Cheveyo alone, Rose Windows took shape as the band amassed members from their circle of musician friends. Rose Windows began playing out, fluidly sharing the stage with underground art-metal bands one night and popular indie Americana acts the next.
In November of 2011, the band began working on The Sun Dogs with local producer Randall Dunn (SunnO))), Boris, Earth, Master Musicians of Bukkake). Dunnâ€™s penchant for musical anthropology proved the perfect match for the band, with their mutual curiosity and artistic ambition broadening the scope of the album. Dynamics were expanded. Boundaries were pushed.
Rose Windows have toured the West Coast several times, and with the release of The Sun Dogs, the band plans much more. In the meantime, they continue their searchâ€”delving into archives of long-lost albums, learning more about their craft from renowned local musicians, and charting their own path in an ancient art.
