Sneak Preview

Sam Buck Rosen

Official Link: http://www.samrosen.net/

"Sam Buck Rosen is a New Yorker who simply makes some awesome music. He’s signed to the Secretly Canadian/Dead Oceans/Jagjaguwar imprint called St. Ives, a boutique vinyl (and MP3) only label. Sam’s voice has a great range, with a tremendous amount of flexibility. This is showcased on his new record Dominant Mind, where his voice spastically jumps around. If Dave Longstreth had spent his earlier years mastering various electronic and analog instruments, as opposed to just focusing on guitar, his music would have sounded a bit like Rosen’s. This comes as no surprise, seeing that both Nat Baldwin and Angel Deradoorian of Dirty Projectors have collaborated with Rosen in the past. However accurate or inaccurate this comparison may be, it’s not quite fair to pigeon hole Dominant Mind, because it doesn’t really sound like anything else. It exists in its own world, which is why it’s so fucking cool. The record starts off with “Rich”, one of my favorites on the record. Bleeping synthesizers prepare the listener for Rosen’s voice, which sounds just as much like an instrument as anything else being played. Hand claps keep the pulse as various instruments frantically try to find their place within the track. “Sam BF Rosen” is another favorite of mine, although it’s a bit more structured than “Rich.” A building piano underscores the entire track, accompanied by rolling snare drums and multiple layers of Rosen’s voice. “Sam BF Rosen” features one of the catchiest and most accessible hooks of the record, with Rosen establishing a clear cut melody, as opposed to following wherever his voice wanders off to."
