Roselit Bone (from the E.P. Crisis Actor available on Get Loud Recordings)
Roselit Bone stage southwest Shakespearian-condoned drama as musical vignettes, the tales on Crisis Actor, their recent E.P. release, gazing as a novella unfolds on the banks of the Salton Sea, blowing through Tehachapi with MexiCali horns into “Anza Borrego”. Crisis Actor answers the call of Mariachi horns and surf guitars for “Surgeon’s Saw” as Roselit Bone pop some trucker speed spreading honky tonk stardust over “Laughlin, NV” and plant some Country and Tex-Mex tones on “Proving Grounds”.
A rambling melody sways dizzingly as the Countrified music, and wisdom, of “I Pissed the Bed” admit soaking the mattress through as the guilty party assures his lover ‘this doesn’t reflect on you’. The arrangements of Crisis Actor are cinematic in their scope, theatrical with sweeping tales, the title track spitting its story over instrumentation that froths and heaves underneath. Roselit Bone saddle up a rolling rhythm for the majestic glory of “A Word for Blue” and switch attention to a smoke-tainted late night stage, a bare light bulb shining on the last gasp of the band sinking into the cabaret noir dreams of “We’ll Make a Living (for the Bourgeois)”.
