Tonight! The Rosewood Thieves and the Dead Trees at the Firebird


  • mike mabes/

The Dead Trees (who Roy Kasten digs a lot) and the Rosewood Thieves are playing tonight at the Firebird. The latter is new to me, but has released a bunch of things since 2006 -- including a disc of Solomon Burke covers. (The legendary bluesman penned the liner notes for the band's latest, Heartaches By The Pound.) However, the trio isn't your garden-variety neo-blues-revival band: Judging by MySpace, the band incorporates hints of shoegaze-pop, desert-twang and psych-folk. Eminently listenable and bewitching, in fact. Take a listen below.
