ROCK: Roots Rock, ROCK: Americana
"Dose is a double-disc journey through the heart of Americana and roots music..."-The Houston Chronicle
A potent combination of country, blues, folk, rock and hip-hop, Red Rooster''s double-disk release, "Dose," represents the best of American roots music with a distinctly urban twist. The groundbreaking, two-disk format juxtaposes the traditional and the modern to create a unique listening experience. The first disc offers ten new Red Rooster tracks, using every modern tool at the bands'' disposal, from amplifiers and distortion pedals to samples and computers. The second disc takes those same exact songs, but strips down the arrangements to only acoustic instruments and natural sounds that could be captured only by a microphone. Exploring alternate melodies, lyrics, and tempos with each varied track, this exciting new album will appeal to both music aficionados tired of the "same old, same old" as well as casual fans looking for a couple CDs of great new music.
"Wanted to say again how much I love your disc. Your brilliant release is on my Top 13 Albums of 2005."
-George Maida, The Electric Croude (WCVE-FM), on Dose
"Red Rooster delivers ten well-written, compelling songs easily strong enough to stand up to reinterpretation. ...It''s a great big stew of blues and pop and bluegrass and ethnic (think Mexicali and Klezmer) and ''hick-hop'' (sort of the Americana man''s hip-hop) simmering over an urban fire." -Pure Music
"Red Rooster has released possibly the ultimate modern alt-country album... The fact that Red Rooster has managed to capture the dichotomy of modern American roots music using just the same ten songs is nothing short of astounding. ''Dose'' is certainly an early front runner for album of the year." -Americana-UK read more
"...the production and musicianship are excellent, whether fleshed out or stripped down." -Vintage Guitar Magazine
"It''s a big, broad plate of goodness, so clean off your fork, tuck in your napkin, and get ready to eat."
"New York''s Red Rooster update the somewhat tired alt-country genre with non-traditional sounds like the French horn and clarinet." -Nashville Scene
