Dawn Golden and Rosy Cross Ready EP

Dawn Golden and Rosy Cross are ready to step into the limelight. The band just released their first EP, called The Blow EP on Mad Descent April 12th.

Dawn Golden and Rosy Cross is the brainchild of producer Dexter Tortoriello, who is recognized more for his other band Houses.

Unlike Houses, which focuses more on the melodic and soothing side of things, Dawn Golden and Rosy Cross draws influences from as wide as death metal to noise pop.

You can hear the song “Blacks” right here, and look for the band’s first EP out now!

Great Northern ‘Houses’

2009 is already starting out to be a great year for new records. Case in point, Great Northern will be releasing ‘Remind Me Where the Light Is’on April 28. One of the first tsongs that has caught our attention is titled ‘Houses,’  and it is definitely making us count the days until the album’s release. Racheal Stolte’s voice gets more brilliant every time I hear it. Great Northern will also be putting out a limited edition 7″ with it. Nice. This is the kind of band that sends chills down your spine whenever you hear them. Live, they are just as phenomenal .

In addition to all of this the band is also involved with The Gooseberries project that is coming out soon. This is a collection of portraits in an LP Sleeve (that also includes a dvd of interviews, etc.) along with other great bands such as Silversun Pickups, Earlimart, and Rogue Wave.
