Rogue Wave's show last Wednesday night was a reminder of how beloved the band is in the Bay Area indie music community, as the fans and friends that packed Bottom of the Hill responded with roaring enthusiasm to songs from the band's new album, Permalight. In addition to introducing the crowd to some winning new indie pop gems, the sneak preview of new songs also put to rest any fears that Permalight's use of electronic sounds would stifle the band's engaging warmth. Or, as Rogue himself dryly quipped after one song, "We're so dancey."

Rogue Wave - "Solitary Gun"

If you want to check out Permalight for yourself, head on over to Pandora, where you can hear tracks from the album before it comes out this Tuesday. Additionally, Rogue Wave have created a series of mini-movies for the new songs, and we're happy to premiere the video for "We Will Make A Song Destroy" above. You can follow all of the mini-movies over at the band's web site.
