Hey Rosetta! – Seeds (Sonic / Warner Music Canada)

If 2010 was the year of Arcade Fire, 2011 just might belong to Newfoundland’s Hey Rosetta. Buoyed by the critical success of their debut, the band returns to weave incredibly powerful melodies throughout these 11 tracks. Starting with the optimistically powerful-sounding title track, the band lets loose bolstering their sound with horns, keyboards and more and ultimately giving valuable new meaning to the term “indie rock”. Highlights include Young Glass, Yer Spring and Welcome.
