As mentioned, Roses -- the new band from onetime Abe Vigoda guitarist Juan Velazquez -- are visiting this weekend from LA to play three NYC shows. The band's debut EP will be out on Tuesday (8/5) on Group Tightner and they've just shared a third song, the dreamy/moody "The Fog." You can stream that, along with two other songs ("It's Over" is the real winner here) from the EP, below.

Tonight (8/1) Roses will be at Death by Audio for an extremely solid bill (on a pretty quiet night in NYC), with headliners Future Punx, the poppy indie rock of Darlings, Philly band The Beds, and something mysteriously listed on DbA's website as "The Light in Spanish."

Then on Saturday (8/2) Roses play Cake Shop with Outside World, Wreaths and Yin Yangs, and finally they play Silent Barn on Sunday (8/3) with Grand Resort, Chimes, and Bueno. Flyer for their NYC shows, plus the three song streams, below...

Take a piece of tinsel and put it on the tree
Cut a slab of melon and pretend
that you still love me
Carve out a pumpkin and rely on your destiny
Get in your car and cruise the land
of the brave and the free

But don't forget to understand exactly what
you put on the tree
Don't believe the florist when he tells you that
the roses are free

Take a wrinkled raisin, and do with it what you will
Push it into third if you know you're gonna
climb a hill
Eat plenty of lasagna 'til you know
that you've had your fill
Resist all the urges that make you wanna
go out and kill

But don't forget to understand exactly what
you put on the tree
Don't believe the florist when he tells you that
the roses are free

Throw that pumpkin at the tree
Unless you think that pumpkin hols your destiny
Cast it off into the sea, bake that pie
and eat it with me

I like the photo and really the coolest ever. Apart from that, this band is one of the best.
