Rose Windows begins with “Bodhi Song”, a hat tip to the Buddhist concept of spiritual enlightenment. Bodhi literally translates to “awakened”, and the song’s rousing trajectory from a dusty Morricone twang to a shimmering vista of minor-key Americana fittingly captures the sensation of rubbing the sleep from your eyes and seeing the world open up in front of you. This expansion of sound leads into the distorted stomp and swagger of “Glory, Glory”, where Veronica Dyes’ flute lines mesh with the gnarled fuzz bass of Richie Rekow and thunderous riffs of guitarists Chris Cheveyo and Nils Petersen—a tonal duality reminiscent of the heavy blues and prog proclivities of Jethro Tull. Petersen mentioned that Rose Windows marks a departure from the pastoral worldview of The Sun Dogs and focuses instead on the nature of human interaction within the choked cityscape. “Blind” and “Strip Mall Babylon” both demonstrate this newfound focus, with vocalist Rabia Shaheen Qazi railing against “another goddamn fool uprooted from the garden of his youth” and wondering “was I born to lose my culture to Babel?” In both cases, the musical backdrop fluctuates between a casual swagger and a forceful thrust, as if the band strives towards a more reserved groove, but ultimately can’t hold back from hammering the point home with a barrage from their instruments. The band asserts that they made a concentrated effort to move away from their folk and ‘60s pop influences, yet “Come Get Us Again” affirms Rose Windows’ gift for stately sweeping melodies in the singer-songwriter tradition. The founding members—Cheveyo, Petersen, and drummer Pat Schowe—cut their teeth playing heavy, cinematic post-rock, and vestiges of that brand of instrumental interplay can be heard in the patient build-ups and psychedelic crescendos of “The Old Crow” and “Aurora Avenue”. The album ends with the grandiose beauty of “A Pleasure To Burn” and “Hirami”, a two-part coda that serves as a comedown from Rose Windows’ aural journey. If the album opened with an awakening, it closes with a lullaby.

The role of time and space has always played a major role in guiding the sound of Rose Windows. Whether you see a bright future or impending calamity, whether you thrive on the pulse of the big city or pine for the solace of nature, Rose Windows perfectly encapsulates the human experience within our world in the 21st century.
