QUICHENIGHT: LEGEND OF A BAND?
Quichenight, helmed by the adept Nashville-based songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist Brett Rosenberg, epitomizes an audial manifestation emanating from the creative precincts of the artist. Commencing its melodic odyssey in 2011 with the inaugural opus, aptly christened Quichenight I, the opus was meticulously crafted in splendid solitude within the subterranean confines of Battle Tapes studio, which, incidentally, served as the artist's humble abode at the time. Rosenberg expeditiously solidified his position as an integral constituent of the flourishing DIY milieu prevalent in the locality. Throughout the temporal expanse, Rosenberg adroitly honed his unique sonic tapestry, drawing inspiration from the aural vernacular of 20th-century exemplars while ingeniously fashioning a present-day iteration of unconventional popular music. The lo-fi sonorities ensconced within his sonic fabric lend an authentic and intimate demeanor that contravenes the more polished manifestations favored by his contemporaries. Collaborating with Pujol in 2012, Rosenberg's initial output as Quichenight swiftly amassed a modest yet fervent following. The critically acclaimed Quichenight III, released in 2013, soared to the commendable position of seventh best album of the year as per the discerning judgment of the Nashville Scene critics' poll. Rosenberg, a ceaseless maestro, has since unleashed an incessant torrent of melodious endeavors, among them the noteworthy studio creation The Minor Sea, released in 2015.In the year 2018, Rosenberg undertook a collaborative venture with Jasmin Kaset of the esteemed ensemble Birdcloud, rendering his artistic expertise to the production of her solo opus, Tuxedo, while concurrently releasing Quichenight's sophomore studio effort, Cooler Heads, shepherded under the discerning guidance of Jeremy Ferguson. Notably, the annals of 2019 witnessed the release of the audacious punk magnum opus Dork in the Dark, masterfully unleashed by Rosenberg upon the aural landscape under the banner of Burger Records. The most recent installments within the illustrious Quichenight discography encompass two instrumental collections, namely Cosmic Gurney and Illegal Quiche, both of which exude an ethereal fusion of melodies. Additionally, the synth-infused opus Tesago and Clown Country, a compilation featuring a trove of unreleased compositions, augment the artist's formidable repertoire. Resolutely forging ahead, Quichenight's forthcoming offering, the audacious 13th full-length endeavor Yabba Yow, is primed for release in the calendrical realms of 2023.
