Over the past two years, the Roseline has quietly become one of the best live acts in the area. Purveying a sparkling brand of singer-songwriter Americana, the group touches on the late-night brilliance of Whiskeytown and Josh Ritter. Frontman Colin Halliburton's colorful couplets match Ryan Adams punch for punch, and he's fortunate enough to be backed by one of the most accomplished roadhouse ensembles this side of BR-549. The Lawrence band celebrates the release of its sophomore LP, Lust for Luster, Friday. Recorded at Black Lodge Studios, the album is a front-runner for breakout local release of the year.
