Rose’s Pawn Shop Dancing on the Gallows

Posted on Jun 24, 2010

Dancing on the Gallows, the second album from California indie outfit, Rose’s Pawn Shop (RPS), is going for adds June 28th and 29th.

RPS confronts traditional country music themes of loss, lamentation, and redemption, while throwing in some drinking-songs for good measure. They’re borrowing pages from legends, but RPS takes those pages, tears them up, and sets them on fire with breakneck speed, bluegrass instrumentation, 3- and 4- part vocal harmonies and lyrics that will break your heart. No matter how low you’ve sunk, something in the music finds you. It picks you up and carries you home.

FCC Warning on Track 9.

Focus tracks: 1, 2, 5, 7, 11.
