Album Review

Michigan rockers Rosetta make an impressive noise on Eternity, coming off as a Midwest Jesus & Mary Chain. Of course, there is the obvious comparison, which is singer Andy Leroy sounds almost exactly like Jim Reid, complete with cigarette-scarred whisper and cool attitude. That is not necessarily a bad thing; in fact, it is the perfect voice to sing over Rosetta's blend of angular pop and shoegazing guitar. The sounds on the album wash over the listener, using subtlety and muffled noises to bring across their point. Tracks like "Kozmonico" and "Ansurilikov" are good examples, with Leroy pulling the melody together over rivers of guitar. But elsewhere they can give in to their pop side, as on "Macy Gladys," where they throw in handclaps and Stone Roses guitar parts. And then there is "Sarasota," the winding meld of soul and noise pop that floats around Leroy's delicate vocal line for four minutes. Admittedly, the album does get long in parts, especially when they give in to the repetitiveness of the music and just let it keep going. But overall, this is a very promising release from a band that seems to have mastered the fine art of shoegazing.
