Rosine: L

(Rag & Bone Shop Records)

Composer and multi-instrumentalist Mark Lerner's new album under the band name Rosine kicks off with "Walter," at first featuring the Kingston-based musician's jittery guitar finger-picking, putting it in the realm of new acoustic music. Then Carrie Bradley's Eastern European-drenched violin comes soaring in, lending the tune the flavor of Minimalist avant-chamber music, before the former member of the Breeders goes full-fledged klezmer atop rock 'n' roll drums. The rock beat then enters with electric bass as it subtly morphs into dub-reggae before a mysterious, angry-sounding vocal sample emerges, carrying the listener to the end. If this sounds like a wild, genre-hopping psychedelic trip, it is; but in the hands of Lerner—the longtime bassist of Poughkeepise-based Life in a Blender—it all goes by with perfect logic and beauty, setting the tone for the next dozen tunes on this stellar effort by a dazzling visionary.

    Here in the Hudson Valley and Catskills there’s a coziness about the Woodstock '69 50th anniversary. While tie dye and tolerance have never really gone out of style around here, those who’d like to mark the anniversary in some way have a number of local goings-on to slake their thirst for nostalgia, peace, love and music. Hey now, we still know how to brew that stuff from scratch.
