The Rosebuds superb new album was released in June and chronicles the period after band leaders Kelly Crisp and Ivan Howard had divorced in 2009. Loud Planes Fly Low is an album of intelligence and maturity — the resolution of personal difficulties within a professional relationship, the “divorce” album has sadly become a staple of rock music. At Bowery Ballroom on Wednesday night, the Rosebuds performed much of Loud Planes as a tight and cohesive unit. The touring band currently includes talented multi-instrumentalist Daniel Hart, whose skills in other settings we have previous experienced (here and here). Of the seven new songs performed, we were particularly impressed with the poignancy of the dirge-like “Second Bird of Paradise” and the energy of show-stopper “Woods”, both of which are streaming below. The Rosebuds current tour comes to a close with several southern dates this coming week.

I recorded this set with the warmer and vocal-friendly DPA microphones mounted at our standard balcony rail location and mixed with an excellent soundboard feed. The sound quality is quite excellent. Enjoy!
