Episode 429: Rose City Band And The Resurgence of Jam

In the modern music era, most new releases come saddled with histories we’re supposed to believe in, recycled narratives, and increasingly thirsty marketing “hooks.” Which is what makes Rose City Band’s self-titled debut such a unicorn of an album.

There are only two things that we know for sure about this band:

1) Ripley Johnson (Moon Duo, Wooden Shjips) produced it.

2) It jams.

Refreshing AF, right?

Special guest Jonathan Hart (Brokedown Pod) joins us to discuss why Rose City Band is destined to be the soundtrack of your Summer, the resurgence of “jam band” music in the mainstream, and more.
