Artist Video


To the seventeenth-century poet Robert Herrick, rosebuds were a symbol of the fleeting pleasures of youth. Orson Welles made “Rosebud” the dying word of Charles Foster Kane, again a symbol of the tenacity of youthful memory. Kelly and Ivan - The Rosebuds - make music that embodies that certain spirit—youthful, but complex. Not at all fairytale, but magical. Not realistic, but ... Read more in Amazon's Rosebuds Store

Editorial Reviews

Loud Planes Fly Low is beautifully born of the struggle to define their relationship as bandmates and more importantly, friends outside of the context of marriage. It wasn't easy. Written and rewritten, recorded and re-recorded in fits and starts, Loud Planes Fly Low allowed Kelly and Ivan to have the very conversations about their relationship that they'd long avoided.

4.0 out of 5 stars Relating a Dream July 16, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Loud Planes Fly Low" is my introduction to The Rosebuds and is their fifth album. Based in North Carolina, the album comes amid the breakup of the marriage of the two members Ivan Howard & Kelly Crisp. Chris Stamey produced the set. Their music has a punch with dreamy sonic washes building the arrangements to emotional climaxes like on "Woods" & "A Story." The opener "Go Ahead" relies on melody to grip the listener with lyrics that sound like someone relating a dream, "Let's go ahead and grab our clothes and walk together where the water knows us & toss them over the edge in the lake and watch them sink." "Limitless Arms" has the same dreamy feel with Ivan's high vocals over the midtempo beat. "Come Visit Me" with Kelly's vocals front & center has the closest thing to a hook in a sweet pop tune. My favorite track is the largely acoustic "Without a Focus" which has the most accessible lyric, "I don't know how I'm supposed to feel." "Waiting for You" is another strong song with a breakup theme, "And I tried to be myself; And I tried to come around; And I've tried to leave my way." "Low Planes Fly Low" is somewhat marred by the utilitarian lyrics, but is bolstered by strong melodies and Ivan Howard's expressive vocals. It grows on you. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loud Planes Fly Low, over and over again July 28, 2011
By Kelly
Format:MP3 Music
This CD is absolutely amazing. I have owned it since it came out, and I still have not grown tired of it. Ivan and Kelly did a great job on this album! It's very personal, easy to relate to, and their voices are amazing. Not to mention, the sound of this album is incredible. Everyone raves about "Woods" being the albums best song, but my personal favorite is "Cover Ears." Buy it, you'll love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, but sad in a way... July 27, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
I have been a fan of the Rosebuds for ages now, having started with their amazing Birds Make Good Neighbors (Dig), and from there going backwards and forwards, enjoying every release. 'Loud Planes Fly Low' is a great addition to the catalog, showing a maturity and depth in their writing, while melodically being quite beautiful. At the same time, I can't help but being a bit sad, as this is most likely the last album by Ivan and Kelly, as they recorded this in the midst of their divorce. Whether intentionally or not, you can feel the breakup in this album. Knowing what is going on 'behind the scenes' definitely colors this release. If only there were Crayola colors called 'Bittersweet' and 'Beautiful' and 'Sunset', those would be the crayons used in this coloring book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent August 18, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
I'm absolutely loving this album, might be one of my favorites of the year. And I listen to a lot of music. Start with Woods and then go from there to Cover Ears (the title containing track), Go Ahead, and on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bottom line..this is a really good CD July 18, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Like you Lee, this was my intro to the Rosebuds as well. I heard "Woods" on XM radio and instantly fell in love with them. I was very happy this wasn't the only CD I was going to hear from them and instantly started to purchase other downloads. I've given this CD every chance to woo me, in the tub (check), in the car (check) in the house while cleaning (check), and it did! The lyrics are, I would say, maybe just maybe a little political and uber romantic. I tried not to over think about the fact that Ivan and Kelly are now divorce, and in some sort of wierd way, the songs are written for and about eachother I just enjoyed the writing (altho it will initially come across that way). I am looking forward to them coming to Philly where I know moshpits won't be involved, but good singing will be.Favorite songs: Limitless Arms, Woods and Come Visit Me.
Side note: don't sleep on Kelly's voice, it's really good and sweet. Ivan does most of the lead singing.Check out Life Like too, you won't be disappointed!!! The blog website Aquariumdrunkard also had a live performance of them in LA.
