Most songs come with back stories. Many are romantic in nature and don’t usually require explanation. Others bounce between meaning and nonsense. Others still, have a couple of layers and the story is imperative to thoroughly enjoying the song. The new Rosebuds track “Brad Cook Is Not Your Man” is just that, exploring cops, bromanship, and the love for basketball on top of a soft pseudo-surf rock ‘buds groove.
Lots of bands from around the nation pick up and move to the Triangle, attracted by this area’s great musicians and reputation for respecting local music. Few have managed to shed the outsider label and become a vital part of the local music family. Megafaun is one of the few.
