Cast Away the Clouds


Cast Away the Clouds by Double Agent Records at Silent Rider Music. Hurry! Limited time offer. Offer valid only while supplies last. ''File Under: simply beautiful indie-pop. Rose Melberg is best known as half of The Softies, an understated, sparkling acoustic two-guitar and two-voice group whose albums bring to mind rose petals, rosy blushes, rock roses and summer afternoons on a crushed-out best friend's roof, watching the roseate sun as it sets without you. If you're already in love with Melberg's voice, or with her simply moving lyrics, all you need to know is that this exists.'' - CMJ ''With the gauzy innocence


Product Description & Reviews

"File Under: simply beautiful indie-pop. Rose Melberg is best known as half of The Softies, an understated, sparkling acoustic two-guitar and two-voice group whose albums bring to mind rose petals, rosy blushes, rock roses and summer afternoons on a crushed-out best friend's roof, watching the roseate sun as it sets without you. If you're already in love with Melberg's voice, or with her simply moving lyrics, all you need to know is that this exists." - CMJ "With the gauzy innocence and childlike simplicity of Moe Tucker's moment in the Velvets' spotlight...Melberg's voice has the proud yet vulnerable quality of a spurned teenager in love." - BOSTON PHOENIX "Even in light of the uniform brilliance of Rose Melberg's past work with Tiger Trap and The Softies, her solo debut is still revelatory - never before has her voice been so disarmingly honest and vulnerable...a small miracle." - ALL MUSIC GUIDE Straight out of a Sacramento high school, Rose Melberg entered the indie-pop 7" scene in 1992 with the first of her many successful bands, Tiger Trap, and the all-girl foursome quickly became the stars of a burgeoning indie-pop/punk movement centered in Olympia, WA and labels like K Records and Kill Rock Stars. Too good to last, Tiger Trap split after their second U.S. tour, leaving one classic album and an EP on K Records. Melberg quickly teamed with Jen Sbragia to form The Softies, possibly her best-known project. With just guitars and angelic voices, The Softies debuted with a 7" and mini-LP on Slumberland Records, toured the U.S. five times (once with Elliott Smith) and released three amazing albums and singles, also on K Records, from 1994-2001. At the same time, Melberg managed to front Go Sailor, who collected their sought-after pop singles on Lookout Records and had two songs featured in the campy film But I'm a Cheerleader. Melberg also recorded various duets and solo tracks while on tour, compiled on Portola and released by Double Agent Records in 1998. After giving us an avalanche of mellifluous albums to treasure, Melberg kept quiet for five years while she started a family in a small Canadian town. Now, she is back with her solo masterpiece, and her maturity is immediate - long after graduating from Indiepop University, she emerges as a developed singer/songwriter akin to Nick Drake, Tracey Thorn, Elliott Smith and Isobel Campbell (Belle & Sebastian).
