Rose Hill Drive

Knocking the members of Rose Hill Drive for their retro tastes is like criticizing shredded wheat for being crunchy. It's part of the package — one that Moon Is the New Earth delivers in a variety of tasty ways. The disc, which is being celebrated at a Tuesday, June 24, show at the Fox Theatre and in-store appearances at Twist & Shout and Bart's CD Cellar on June 25 and 27, respectively, features several entertainingly excessive blues-rock booglarizers, including "Speak Out" and "Trans Am." But Nathan Barnes and brothers Daniel and Jacob Sproul expand their horizons to include power pop, garagey rave-ups and even vintage psychedelia on "Do You Wanna Get High?," during which Daniel swears, "It really is fantastic/You don't even know, man." Actually, we probably do.
