Music Review: The Rosewood Thieves – From The Decker House

By Karan Patel (Simple Complex Continuity)

The Rosewood Thieves are an American Folk band from New York. I got a chance to listen to their first major EP, From the Decker House. They have an interesting blend of eclecticity (TM) filled with folk/alternative/post grunge/punk/country and blues elements in their songs. Interesting easy listening lyrics fueled with Mackenzie Vernacchio’s melodic organ solos, Paul Jenkins’ raunchy barred chord riffs topped with Wurlitzer Piano chorus’, Eric Jordan’s lark like voice and fine groovy bass and drums by Jon Estes and Mark Bordenet makes The Rosewood Thieves, a must listen for every Alternative Rock fan.

Right from the first song “Los Angeles”, which talks about a romantic affair with the sun and the city, and a very interesting chord progression throughout the song to “Back Home in Harlem”, a wonderful jam song to “Doctor”, a jumpy yet dark country song to “Cold in the Country”, this album hits every pulse. A wonderful blues solo steals the flower (pun intended) in “Lonesome Road”.

The sound is simple, fresh and remarkably mellifluous.

This is a great debut album for The Rosewood Thieves and I can’t wait to get my ears on their second EP, titled Lonesome.

Rating : 3.5/5
