The early days of Rose Windows—after guitarist Chris Cheveyo and drummer Pat Schowe moved to Seattle from Texas—were spent alongside the birth and development of another Sub Pop band: the Head and the Heart. But that shared background is where comparisons between the two bands end. Where TH&TH is a paragon of the gentle folk-rock sound of right now, Rose Windows sounds like it was plucked from the '60s, dipped in the '70s, and shipped to the present. Cheveyo, Schowe, & Co. play authentically vintage psychedelic music that riffs like Black Sabbath, rocks like early Jefferson Starship (vocalist Rabia Qazi will grow tired of the Grace Slick comparisons, if she hasn't already), and wanders the Eastern Hemisphere like Marco Polo. On their 2013 album The Sun Dogs, Rose Windows makes a decades-old style sound fresh, and does so with ease. BEN SALMON
