MPFree: The Rosebuds - In My Teeth
Ashley Team Laverne
Today’s free download comes from a super-group of sorts that formed in 2001 and saw their first live performances turning the stage into a replica of their own living room.
The Rosebuds are a duo from Raleigh, North Carolina consisting of Ivan Howard and Kelly Crisp. For this project they joined up with Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon (who declared that The Rosebuds have made “some of the most important music in the world”) on guitar and synths. The group is finished off by Bon Iver drummer Matt McCaughan and Sylvan Esso's Nick Sanborn on bass. The result is 6th album Sand + Silence, of which In My Teeth is taken. The group all met and bashed out some ideas over a week in Vernon’s studio, and the result is some minor-key piano, sunshine pop that's rich on the vocals and catchy as hell after a few listens. Be prepared to have this in your head for quite some time. And check out that guitar solo!
