Bleached Roses was live on Fox 7 Austin promoting new EP 'Blooms' and talk about our upcoming SIMS Benefit benefit show featuring MAMAHAWK, Mean Jolene, Carry Illinois, and Lauren Burton of Lola Tried. Watch below!
We are pleased to announce the Marcus Morales 'The Bohemian Groove' EP Release Thursday, January 10th at The Saxon Pub at 10 PM.
Marcos Morales is a new artist centered in atmospheric, bluesy, rock n roll. Morales’ vocals range from soulful, entrancing melodies, to gritty, belted out emotionally charged notes. His electric guitar style pays tribute to legends of the past, while maintaining a unique sound of his own. With bending strings, sliding guitars, and rhythmic riffs, Morales paints a soundscape that is rich and full. His accomplished music style recently took him to The International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee as a semi finalist.
We had a great night raising money for Out Youth at Cheer Up Charlies this Sunday! From Gleason Golightly's first live show (which we absolutely recommend by the way) to Ladyfang's polished sound and crazy energetic set, this lineup had us on our feet dancing into the night. We were able to raise $809 which will go directly to Austin non-profit, Out Youth. Out Youth provides lgbtq youth counseling, transgender wellness, drop-in center, free HIV testing, and health & safer sex trainings. You can read more about them HERE.
Thank you to Space Heat, Gleason Golightly, Scenery, Lindsey Kappa, Ladyfang, Dorsia, Goons, and Hex Boyfriend for donating their time and putting on amazing sets. And thank you to everyone that came out and donated so graciously!
FullNote Record’s next benefit show is December 7th at Hotel Vegas featuring: Mamahawk, Bleached Roses, Mean Jolene, Carry Illinois, and Lola Tried (solo). This show will benefit The SIMS Foundation. See you then!
Who said that classical music only belong in that genre? We have seen groups such as KISS, Metallica, and Scorpions utilize a full-fledged orchestra in order to create re-imaginations of their classic songs. We have also seen pop-punk group Yellowcard incorporate the violin into their infectious pop songs. Now, we are seeing Austin, Texas’s own Bleached Roses incorporate strings and lush piano arrangements into their contagious blend of indie rock with their latest EP offering entitled “Blooms”.
Bleached Roses is composed of Lexi Cardenas on violin/vocals/guitar, Mo Paynter on synth/guitar, Jacob Wiviott on drums/piano, and Christiano Bellani on bass in order to round out the band. They have several other individuals incorporated in the string section including Laura Wood, Marisol Cardenas, and Diana Burgess in order to provide that full wall of sound that Bleached Roses have became known for. From the inception, Bleached Roses have made a mark in the Texas indie scene by playing the annual Pecan Festival and playing numerous shows in the scene. People would describe their live act as a must-see show with lush arrangements and well-thought out songwriting.
“Blooms” starts off with a beautiful string arrangement coupled with the guitar work of Paynter, before Cardenas breaks into the vocals in the opening track “Stay”. Immediately, I notice how introspective the vocals are, and how melancholy the arrangement sounds, which allows the listener to paint a picture of the emotions of the arrangement and the storyline of the lyrics. It paints that reflective bleak looking picture, and as the second verse kicks in, Wiviott and Bellani both do a masterful job in the rhythm section. There is a sense of vulnerability and brokenness in the opening track “Stay”.
Wiviott not only slays it on the drums, but sweeps the listener off of their feet with the piano arrangement in “Cloud 9”. This particular track has that early 1990’s soft rock feel to it as it makes people long for the days of Tori Amos meets Fiona Apple with the introspective songwriting and beautiful arrangements.
What immediately grasps my attention is how infectious and lush that Bleached Roses sound in their arrangements and in their vocal stylings. The songs are introspective, melancholic, and contemplative all in the same breath. This band is certainly going places with their quality musicianship and their impeccable abilities to craft a quality song. Madness To Creation gives “Blooms” by Bleached Roses a 9 out of 10 stars. Check out the track listing below.
FullNote Records is excited to announce The SIMS Foundation benefit show on Friday, December 7th at Hotel Vegas featuring MAMAHAWK, Bleached Roses, Mean Jolene, Carry Illinois, and Lauren from Lola Tried. Join us in celebrating great music for an even greater cause!
