Hey Rosetta!: Into Your Lungs (and around in your heart and on through your blood)

Canadian sextet Hey Rosetta! mixes strings with U2 guitar lines, and those those two elements buld upon each other quite well. Into Your Lungs ((and around in your heart and on through your blood) sounds big, but not overpowering. This album is a grower, a sleeping giant that needs a couple of spins to wake up.

For Handshake The Gangster singer Tim Baker adopts the perspective a mafia gun men with a conscience, Holy Shit (What A Relief) channels Radiohead for the vocals and Pink Floyd for the lonesome sounding guitar, while stand-out track I've Been Asleep For A Long, Long Time deals what the passing of time when all that is left are the memories.

Tim Baker: vocals, piano, guitar
Adam Hogan: guitar
Josh Ward: bass
Phil Maloney: drums
Kinley Dowling: violin
Romesh Thavanathan: cello
