Back in 2010, I was one of her biggest fans in the blog-o-sphere because of her sublime debut album, Without Why.
And now I'm here to remind folks that her new EP, Future Vanishes, will be out tomorrow (November 18, 2013).
In fact, you can pre-order it here.
From the near Stereolab-isms of "Sink Back In To The Blue" to the future-looking title track, Future Vanishes marks another milestone in Rose's post-Pipette life. It's self-assured and it builds on the sounds of her first album.
"Strange Warnings" uses both folk and jazz elements to enchant a listener but the standout track in terms of melody is clearly "Poison Ivy". With its keyboard that recalls a less surging version of "Start/Stop/Synchro", the tune uses Rose's warm vocals to great effect. The chorus is instantly memorable and the melody sounds like something off of Rose's first album.
