Rosewood Thieves: Folk Music In The Back Room

My friend Dr. Mooney has been instrumental in turning me on to the fine burnished sounds of New York's Rosewood Thieves [initial post], and keeping me informed on their musical progression. I'd like to thank him for this most recent bonanza: A complete live set from their residency at Pianos, showcasing material both new and old. These kids have two EPs out now: From The Decker House (V2) and their latest independent EP release, Lonesome (just out June 6 but I can't find it anywhere yet). They are in the final stages of mixing their full-length album expected out sometime later this year. Watch the live performance video here and snag the mp3s below. I really like the rich retro sounds coming from these guys (plus gal).

Thanks, thanks & thanks for the link and spreadin' the word about these guys!!! What do you think of the new material?

As for their second EP "Lonesome", it's not quite done. Tis in the mastering phase right now. The "Digital Acetates" sound splendid! Should be out soon! I will hopefully have some news to pass on to you sometime soon!
