Baeble First Play: The College Rock Warmth Of The Roomsounds
    • THURSDAY, MARCH 03, 2016

    I miss 90s college rock. Of course, I was born in 1989 so I was never in college during the peak college rock years, but those songs were the soundtrack of my youth. DMB, Beck, Weezer, Counting Crows, etc. I could go on. It was rock but it knew its way around pop melodies and hooks. And if you need a healthy dose of college rock throwback today, Dallas rockers the Roomsounds have just what you need.

    We've got the exclusive premiere of "Wolf in Sheep's Clothing," the latest single from the Texas rockers. The band's debut record, Elm St., is due out March 25th. And the track with its warm guitars and immediately burrowing vocal hooks wouldn't sound remotely out of place in the mid 90s acoustic rock spree of acts like Edwin McCain, Hootie, and Sister Hazel. The Roomsounds have a more contemporary edge than that -- there's a Strokes-esque undercurrent to their occasionally angular guitars -- but it's still softer rock in the best sense of that word.
