Roselit Bone (from the album Ofrenda available on Get Loud Recordings) (by Bryant Liggett)
Roselit Bone is the perfect band to represent the whole scene of the Rose City (Portland, Oregon). Portland gets a big thumbs up as one of the better local music scenes in the country as its offerings are a little bit of everything. That diversity of sound is what Roselit Bone delivers on their latest Ofrenda, as it dishes out a buffet of styles. There’s the opener, “Your Gun”, which starts as a slow tempo but punch packed Indie Rocker before a John Zorn-like saxophone takes it into Free Jazz territory. There’s a lounge vibe in “The Sea and Silhouette” that carries Psychedelic and Surf traits thanks to the fills of guitar player Victor Franco. “Vassal or Vagabond” is a haunting ballad, Charlotte McCaslin’s vocals backed by a subtle and guttural baritone, while “Truth or Consequences” is a punked up and horn-heavy mariachi cut. “Crying in the USA” drops Surf guitar riffs with an old school, late 50’s Rock’n’Roll vibe, “Ain’t No Right Way to Feel” is crying in your beer pop, and the album closer title-track is a bit Goth, a bit Rock, and a lot good.
Roselit Bone are a stacked, seven-piece RocknRoll outfit that can moonlight as a Country dance band and a Free Jazz World rhythm collective with Goth leanings. With the haunting and heavy vocals of McCaslin, this is a powerful band whose diversity on Ofrenda could put them in different sections of the record store, and place them on multiple stages from festivals to DIY basement venues.
