Click to listen to The Rosebuds' 'Come Visit Me'

Indie-rock duo the Rosebuds recently released their fifth full-length album, Loud Planes Fly Low, and Rolling Stone has an exclusive download of their song "Come Visit Me." The mellow track features a seamless combination of strings and retro dance beats that pair nicely with airy, pop-folk vocals. "I'm usually a very figurative writer, but these lyrics taught me so much about the aesthetic beauty of being direct," vocalist Kelly Crisp tells Rolling Stone. “Even though it is heavy with metaphor, it is still totally honest. Performing it live makes me so proud of myself for who I am now." The lyrics are poignant, and as the songs builds, so does Crisp’s yearning. "I wanna feel something way out here / I need something to happen now / Even if it fucks me up / Come visit me," she sings. And her request is hard to resist.

The Rosebuds' album Loud Planes Fly Low is in stores now, but you can download "Come Visit Me" for free here.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
