rose melberg’s homemade ship on course for september

Rose_06International Pop Underground icon returns to K Records

For her third solo album, ex-Tiger Trap/Go Sailor/Softies member Rose Melberg has returned to her roots with a new deal with K Records, her first release on the label since 2000’s Softies swansong Holiday In Rhode Island. Mirroring the almost fully solo approach she took for 2006’s enchanting comeback Cast Away The Clouds, Rose recorded the dozen songs on Homemade Ship with minimal outside help, only calling on fellow Vancouverite Larissa Loyva (aka Mint Records recording artist Kellarissa, and one quarter of P:ano) to help out on a few tracks. It’s the first new material we’ve heard from Rose since a beautiful cover of Mia Doi Todd’s ‘Autumn’ appeared on her Myspace in December 2008. Sadly, that one hasn’t made the final cut. Full tracklist and artwork below.
