Things fall apart, but perhaps none as often as bands and marriages. If you're a band who's also married, needless to say, the odds are stacked against you. Ivan Howard and Kelly Crisp, the core duo who make Raleigh, North Carolina, band the Rosebuds, fell to these odds a while back and divorced after a decade, but their musical union found a way to continue. Following a rather stormy release that came in their breakup's wake (2011's Loud Planes Fly Low), they seem to have moved on to a more hopeful place on their sixth album, the new Sand + Silence. Readily apparent is the influence of Howard's recent involvement in the band Gayngs—not only for enjoyably breezy, polished cuts like "Mine Mine" and "Death of an Old Bike," but also for the presence of the record's co-producer, Justin Vernon (who, aside from being Mr. Bon Iver, is Howard's bandmate in Gayngs). And speaking of new beginnings, this weekend's Bunk Bar show marks the first for the Rosebuds and Howard in his newly adopted hometown. JEREMY PETERSEN
