Interview in No Depression Magazine

http://www.nodepression.com/profiles/blogs/interview-seattle-rockers-the-bitter-roots
Q: How would you say the Bitter Roots have evolved creatively over the years?
A: The songwriting philosophy for the Bitter Roots has stayed pretty consistent. I have a pair of Guild jumbo body acoustic guitars that I have written all the songs on. The overriding principal has always been can I break this song down to just me singing and playing on this guitar and still have it come off as something interesting. I am always trying to balance my hard aggressive rock tendencies with the prettier bits. Chiaroscuro, the light and the dark.

Marian McPartland 1918 - 2013

Marian McPartland was quite simply one of the greatest musicians that ever was. She could play any song from memory in any key transposing and improvising on the fly. Incredible. I have listened to her show Piano Jazz on NPR my entire life. I adore her and I will miss her music and her unmistakable voice very much. RIP

Nice Review on Indie Rock Cafe

Indie Rock Cafe
The Bands That Rock playlist and profile series reviews rock bands, often DIY or under-the-radar, whose talents should not go unnoticed. Most of the bands in this series – as with many other of our playlist series – sent their music in for review. In fact, we receive close to, or more than, a hundred submissions a month. In the past, the Bands that Rock series has been popular with IRC readers, and this marks the fifth installment of this particular series, highlighting the bands Tsar, Dreamers, Eight Feet Deep, The Bitter Roots and The New Self Defense.

This is the first Song on our new Album.

The Bitter Roots ForKingandCountry

For King and Country .mp3(320) For King and Country .wav(CDA)

Well Don't Collapse now
The World is not ending
Don't you be afraid of the rhythm sending.

Sending you straight back home.

Five long years now
Life in the Gutter
All you left behind was your Children's Mother.

Well whats the plan when they come back broken in threes?

You serve For King and Country
You give your Life
All that is left behind is a lonely woman and child.
If you were to ask me just what I would say
You've got to stay strong you've got to to fight on
You've got to hope for better days

It makes me shiver,
Are we the winner
Well what's the purpose,
To make them serve us?

Well whats the plan when they come back broken in threes?
