Rogue Wave

Artist Update

Rogue Wave became an instant favorite of mine a few years ago with the album Descended Like Vultures, featuring songs I love such as "Publish My Love", "Eyes" and "Salesmen at the Day of the Parade". After that incredible album, the cliche is to publish a mediocre record, but Rogue Wave went rogue on that (heh heh heh). They showed us that they could build and innovate on what they did with 2007's Asleep at Heaven's Gate. "Lake Michigan" is still one of my favorite songs of theirs.

They have a new album out. It's called Permalight. You can't miss it--the album cover is fantastic. Their current label, Brushfire, has done something wonderful for us. They're letting us listen to the entire album via Pandora.

Live via Interface, on AOL Spinner (they always pick great musicians)
Dudes! I went to Amazon to buy at least some of the album (mama's got bills to pay, children...) and one of the songs, "Solitary Gun", is offered free. Sweet!

My original Rogue Wave posts. Wow, the typeface sucks in the earlier posts. The MP3 link for "Publish My Love" (from the band's former label Sub Pop) still works.
