The Rosebuds Blossom

The Rosebuds are a husband-and-wife duo out of North Carolina that have just released their third LP (their first record with Merge). According to them, they wanted to make a "dark, sexy, danceable, nuanced, and sublime record," and I would be a fool to say that they didn't succeed. Night of the Furies is an adorable collection of song, that ranges from moody, melodic tracks to somewhat more voluminous songs that really expand your ears. It is almost as if there's a constant soft synth in the background, that just lies there until it explodes into a chorus of 'Oh's' (see Silja Line) or it may break out into a string-filled delight. Indeed, this record might be considered lighter and fluffier than the norm, but don't take that to mean that it's got no substance. Night of the Furies is an excellent effort that is sure to lead to some more fantastic records from The Rosebuds.
