The Rosebuds, 'Night of the Furies' (Merge)

6
Night of the Furies
Critical Mass
Label: Merge

by Shannon Zimmerman

Hybrid genre alert: If Raleigh, North Carolina's the Rosebuds have their way, "synth-jangle" will soon light up college-radio dials everywhere. Their third album threads seductive, chiming melodies through robotic, New Order-style rhythms. And though some tracks, such as "My Punishment for Fighting," veer into ambient territory so soft-focus that they fail to register at all, others come on stronger. "Get Up Get Out" matches an outsize dance-floor hook to a soulful, hands-in-the-air chorus; and the languid twangfest "Silence by the Lakeside" is a dark charmer worthy of R.E.M.
