Mike Rosenberg Band
Saturday Night TV
Check out this exclusive download of Saturday Night TV by the Mike Rosenberg Band! Mike Rosenberg is a young man, who is capable, through his lyrics, of telling stories from the perspective of the ageing, world-weary man, lost, rootless and full of regret. His partner in this noble endeavour is Andrew Phillips, guitarist, arranger and soundtrack composer.
Their debut album is called "Stray Dog". It's a total mixture of acoustic folk in the storytelling tradition, and an epic-yet-intimate, hip hop and electronica-influenced modernity, suffused with pain, sadness and precocious wisdom, yet completely free of defeatist miserablism.
"Philadelphia" is the group's first digital only release, "Stray Dog". It's the first commercial single to be released from the album and carries the imagery of the title. Rosenberg's striking yet fragile vocal imbues "Philadelphia" with a youthful innocence which contrasts with the song's tortured depth and worldly wise narrative. Laid atop of Andrew Phillips' aching production and dissident electronics, it forms a compelling sonic 'city scape'.
