Rosetta return with new full length “Utopioid”

Rosetta have consistently done interesting things, a band who have set themselves apart from a lot of trend followers in the scene to pursue less well worn paths with the same sense of wonder that makes records by, say, Boris, Kayo Dot or Russian Circles always a discovery more than a “genre based purchase”. They seem to operate strictly on their own terms, as indeed Rosetta began recording the new album as recently as late June , skipped a pre-order and will sell the digital album on a pay-what-you-want model, with more information to come about physical releases at a later date.

The Philly music community often blows me away with a sense that many of the musicians and venues really defend artistry and community over bullshit. I’d also recommend the killer End Christian release (with an insanely cool cast of characters involved) as another fresh record from the area to enjoy alongside this one. Utopioid is a wonderful play on words and makes me think of how we are drawn into so many empty promises in life that weaken us instead of focusing on building a better world together. I have no idea if that was what the band was implying as I am literally listening to this album for the first time at close to 1 am as I type this, but it certainly is already as compelling and full of melodic twists and harsh turns as their other cinematic sounding releases. Kudos!

 

Utopioid is here. We hope you enjoy it.

Good day for amazing band related film news from the Indecision movie trailer (!!!!) and screening in Brooklyn to Rosetta releasing the score for Audio/Visual HERE. An East Coast band of considerable note, Rosetta prove  they are still on another level. This is very exciting and fans from Mogwai to Converge to Sigur Rós should be chuffed. Great strides in band/cinema/documentary relationships have evolved lately as the post-MTV era and Reality TV sle-epoch time we are in now is finally producing items of merit and depth again such as Audio/Visual  or the recent almighty Sam Black Church effort.

Says the band:

This is our original score for Justin Jackson’s documentary, Rosetta: Audio/Visual (released 12/25/14). While the film is Justin’s independent creation and not our work, we contributed original music to the project.

This is a full-length instrumental ambient album made up of long versions of the score pieces appearing in the film. They have not been previously released anywhere else.

We are offering it in digital format only as a pay-what-you-wish download. All the revenue from the score album will go directly to the recording sessions for Rosetta’s next full length, to be released in mid-2015.

Enjoy! Lots more to come in 2015.
