The Rosebuds, 'Loud Planes Fly Low' (Merge)

Loud Planes Fly Low
Critical Mass
Release Date: June 7, 2011

by David Menconi

Some marriages end with shrieks, others with sighs. On Loud Planes Fly Low, Rosebuds co-conspirators Ivan Howard and Kelly Crisp set their breakup sighs to a Greek chorus of lo-fi keyboards, singing things they can't bring themselves to say. On "Come Visit Me," Crisp pleads for contact "even if it makes it worse." Howard's regretful reply -- "Because I would have never left you alone out there / If I could have heard anything at all" -- sounds like a late-night answering-machine message left from a pay phone in the rain.
