Hey Rosetta! In NYC | Playing Pianos, Trash Bar

Hey Rosetta!

As you can see from the above flyer, Newfoundland’s Hey Rosetta! are in town now to play a couple of local gigs. If you’re not busy tonight (March 4), I recommend heading over to Piano’s to check them out, or if you can’t make that, tomorrow they’ll be at the Trash Bar in Brooklyn. I could have sworn I’d written about Hey Rosetta! before in my CMJ coverage, but a quick search of my blog tells me that I haven’t done so (at least not specifically). Anywho, Hey Rosetta!’s Into Your Lungs came out last year in Canada and though it wasn’t eligible for the 2008 Polaris Prize (it came out just after the deadline) more than a few “Bumpershine Polaris Jurists” felt that it should have made the short list, or quite possibly won the whole thing. I’ve actually been listening Into Your Lungs quite a bit lately, and the lead off track, “The New Goodbye”, might just build better than any song I’ve ever heard before.
