Tonight's Concert Pick: The Rosebuds at Johnny Brenda's - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

The video for The Rosebuds‘ song “Woods” is a lament to a relationship featuring the lonely, black-and-white journey of band member Ivan Howard. Masked in grainy, colorless camera effects, Howard shouts lyrics as (bandmate and ex-wife) Kelly Crisp’s eerie vocals dangle in the background. The couple divorced right before writing and recording their most recent album, Loud Planes Fly Low, which, as a result, is their most creative and unrestrained project. Words like “the smallness is the comfort between us/but experience makes us mean,” prove that the members of The Rosebuds share every detail of their past and present relationship with the listener. Although the lyrics can be mournful and the music desolate, the video for “Woods” is a visually and musically pleasing representation of the duo’s emotionally complex relationship. The Rosebuds perform with Yellow Ostrich at 9 p.m. at Johnny Brenda’s; tickets to the 21+ show are $12. —Caitlyn Grabenstein
