Rogue Valley – Crater Lake
Album 1/4: Spring
Rogue Valley is by far one of the best bands I have ever found on Bandcamp. They have four complete albums, each of which is breathtakingly beautiful in its own right.
Each album represents a season, “Crater Lake” being their first release, represents spring. Acoustic guitars and smooth harmonies are the foundation of the band’s soft rock sound, though there are reverb drenched electric guitars, booming drums, and subtle synth tones working here as well. For those who like a folk-y flavor to their indie rock music, Rogue valley is definitely a godsend. I’m thoroughly in love with this band, and this album is just a starting point. The last two records in the series are absolutely breathtaking.
