I had a two-parter planned that will just have to be condensed into a single bohemoth post, and it’s a good one. Thanks to Chris and Eric, I’ve developed an unhealthy obsession with The Rosebuds and their new album Birds Make Good Neighbors. I’m not sure I’ve listened to a catchier, more accessible album than this in the past couple years. The melodies go round and round in my head all day. Check out Eric’s awesome post on Top Ten Vocal Moments on Birds Make Good Neighbors That Don’t Consist of Real Words.
So here’s their Nov. 13 show from Seattle’s Triple Door, brought to you by KEXP.

3. Back to Boston
4. Let Us Go
