Rogue Wave's all over my radar lately
Rogue Wave has been popping up in simply the most delightful places for me in recent days.
First, over Christmas my brother got Season One of the Heroes tv show on DVD so we fed our addiction like crack, watching as many in a row as we could stay awake for (and then having really freaky dreams -- at least I did). In the very first episode, they used the Rogue Wave song "Eyes" to great effect, and I was struck afresh by what a lovely little 2:28 wisp of a song it is. It was looping in my head all day.
"Birds pass by to tell me that I'm not alone . . ."
Eyes - Rogue Wave
Then yesterday I saw that the fabulous Daytrotter (which seriously may be one of the best and most innovative DIY music sites out there today) has a new live session with Rogue Wave, including a performance of their unreleased song "Desperate." It's a tune that makes me feel like I am floating underwater and looking up at the sun filtering in.

Listen to/download the rest of the Daytrotter set here. Rogue Wave also just announced that they will be supporting Nada Surf on the upcoming European Tour from February 20-March 5th.
