Dose is a double-disc journey through the heart of Americana and roots music, accessorized with DJ scratches,
gospel choirs and bluesy instrumentation. The first disc features revved-up, fully electric versions of 10 songs.
Disc two includes intimate, acoustic renditions of the same tracks.

The fact that Red Rooster has managed to capture the dichotomy of modern American roots music
using just the same ten songs is nothing short of astounding.
Porch Songs (2002)
Brooklyn is where the album came together -on
Pacific Street, in that apartment, doors and windows closed, cigarettes
burning, day and night, listening, recording, talking about it, doing it
again. This album was made at home. And if they lived somewhere quieter, it
probably would have been on made the porch. Think of Porch Songs as Red Rooster's
slow-cooked casserole, brought to the
pot luck dinner of Americana music.

"...you guys have done a good f^*&ing record and I intend to play more of it. "
