“Can’t Talk Medicine” is a soul-infused garage rock record. “Halls of Columbia” is a rock solid piano driven opener. “The Round” and”Hacienda Motel” are re-done from their previous “Myths” and sound even better than the originals. “Brother Roland” is a vintage soul ballad at its finest. Songs like “Well,Well”, “Letter Box” and “Window Sill” prove the bands evolution from “Myths” and they’re what define the album as they dirty it up a bit. “Can’t Talk Medicine” is going to be one of the best things you hear this year! The album is streaming over at The Stranger. 

“Can’t Talk Medicine” is available Tuesday at Pickwick Music and iTunes!

The Rouge’s new EP “Blurry” is now streaming over at Spinner and it is hands-down the best material I have heard so far this year. The Rouge offer up a vintage rock sound with raw vocals and catchy hooks like in “Handcuffs” with lyrics like “You said I look blurry in the cop-lights falling in love you, I’m in handcuffs; you took me home and laid me down and we made love until we threw up; this love is so messed up.”  The song “Sinners” is a beautiful work of art and is my personal favorite as of right now. The EP is available on iTunes for $6.99 and it is worth every single penny so check it out!
