Portland’s Roselit Bone is hitting the ground running on <em>Ofrenda</em>, their fourth album. That’s mainly because of lead singer Charlotte McCaslin’s transition. On the title track (below), McCaslin’s sinewy voice finally feels like her own, and it’s easy to hear the eight-piece band lean into her self assurance. <em>Ofrenda</em> is a heady mix of rockabilly and ranchero with a generous helping of gothic sensibility. In our interview, Charlotte explains how the band manages life on the road ahead of <em>Ofrenda</em>‘s release this Friday, 8/25.
