I first wrote about Minneapolis guitarist Chris Rose upon the release of his debut as Robust Worlds, and it's a solid record, but I prefer his fluid guitar playing to his less expressive singing.
By aligning with Sarah Nienaber and Sara Bischoff in Web of Sunsets, he's solved that problem, since Bischoff is a more adept vocalist, though her style is similarly gentle. The end result, which eschews drums in favor of Casio keys and MIDI synths, exhibits more of a radiant folk-country sound than Rose's solo work, and the comparisons to Mazzy Star are not off-base (and now I'm wondering about the record David Roback and Hope Sandoval were supposed to release in 2012; hope it sees the light of day this year). Check out "Fool's Melodies" from local label End of Time Records.
End of Time Records releases "Fool's Melodies" b/w "Neon Blood" on April 16.
