"Although The Rosebuds enamored me, both bands and this new label are doing something exciting - they're showing Southern music is more than whistling with a moonshine jug."
"North Carolina trio the Rosebuds step off the Merge roster for a second to give up "We've Had Enough" to these earnest Atlanta kids' label. 500 copies, clear vinyl, four different sleeves."
"Too bad this is on clear vinyl. It won’t last very long after repeated plays on my stereo."
"The Rosebuds were absolutely incredible. It was actually the first time I ever saw them live, and now I might be a little obsessed."
GNR003 | The Rosebuds / The Close
Two of the biggest indie-rock bands in the Southeast team up for a split 7” on Goodnight records. Chapel Hill’s The Rosebuds have made a name for themselves with relentless touring and an infectious 60s sound. Their full-length on Merge Records, The Rosebuds Make Out, was one of the highlights of last year’s releases. The Close are Atlanta’s most important ‘new’ band, melding mid-90s post-rock with anthemic sing-alongs.
Each 7” comes in limited-edition clear vinyl with one of four hand-screened, signed, and numbered covers by up and coming Atlanta artists. A true must for any record collector.
