Rodes Rollins - Young & Thriving


I'll be honest, I pressed play on this track purely because Stella from Warpaint plays drums on it. It's not actually what I was expecting from knowing that beforehand either, I was expecting to hear her do some wizardry like I've seen so many times before, instead "Young & Thriving" by  LA/NY singer Rodes Rollins is restrained and otherworldly, a Tarantino-esque introduction that soon makes way to the sort of dreamy psychedelia that made Marika Hackman's early material so compelling, a web of intoxicating guitars and beautiful vocals that makes Rodes Rollins shoot straight onto many 'ones to watch' lists.
