TrouserPress.com :: Rogue Wave (464 words)
Even by their finely crafted second album, San Francisco's Rogue Wave had not quite matched their chops to their considerable vision, which is not to say that over the first couple of years of their existence that they were not consistently teeming with a profusion of idiosyncratic bits and pieces of solid indie pop.
Rogue Wave turns the corner here: simple is replaced by studio constructs; the singing is more natural; what was the soft light of a summer ambience has turned autumnal, prefiguring the more ambitious concerns (from private and local to universal and global) of the next album.
And Zach Rogue and his band know many things — how to write intelligent, gentle music that is part of a copious tradition yet remains distinctive and satisfactory.
