Aural Pleasure Review

The Rosedale Highs: 'Go Down'

Photo: , License: N/A


Rosedale Highs sound as if your favorite '90s pop-punk band and your favorite '60s garage-pop group had a child who spent far too much time with Elvis Costello. On their emotive debut album Go Down, this self-described "power pop foursome" manages to make music with snarl and sweetness, where yearning croons and world-weary yawps belong together, along with the occasional saxophone swirl and violin flourish. At times I'm delightfully reminded of early Weezer but, for me, the highlight of the record is the dilapidated country detour "Let's Get Wrecked," a plaintive tape-hiss-enshrouded gaze into the abyss. Catch them live (and get the album) at Boneshakers (306 Austin) on November 2, with Whiskey Ships and others.

★★★ (out of 5 stars)
