Today on Ecléctico you're listening to Rosali, a musician, singer, and songwriter from Philadelphia. Her guitar-based rock songs made a big impact this year (via her album "No Medium") and ended up on many best-of-the-year lists. This record, however, takes the guitar and spaces it out. It's a set of lo-fi, meandering, meditative, and melodic experiments recorded at home in the fall of 2020.

You'll go deeper with two excerpts from and links to brief write-ups on Raven Sings the Blues and Tabs Out.

* ["Modern-day Lizards"] (and most of [the EP] Chokeweed) shows off [Rosali] Middleman’s prowess in harnessing tension and burning it into the mind with a creosote char. The song reflects the sun’s glare straight through the speakers, a hot, dusted slab of fried psychedelics that acts as a dirt bath for the mind.

** Recorded after [her 2021 singer/songwriter album] No Medium, Chokeweed parallels to David Nance’s most expansive licks and Prana Crafter’s deep headspaces. It’s a simple set-up, as Rosali’s self-recorded tracks see the interplay between two guitars looping and that lo-fi reverb sizzle. The results radiate a “back-of-the-dive-bar” warmth in the dead of a fall cold spurt at their most anthemic. Yet, the ease and wandering in and out of these tracks on the tape, track a ghostly, timeless beauty to the tracks’ most hermitudious.
