The Rosebuds are one of, what seems like, a whole bunch of guy-girl bands where the guy and the girl are either married or at least “together”. The Mates of State, Joy Zipper, Viva Voce all come to mind. If you haven’t heard the Rosebuds, I can’t stress enough that you should do yourself a favor and go pick up either of their two records(both on Merge). If you need a little kick, you can check out a new song they’ve made available. It’s called In the Backyard and it’s got bit more synth than anything they’ve done to date, but still with Ivan’s cool laid back vocals.
According to their site, they’ve finished recording their next record. So here’s to a new record in the new year!
