It would be easy to write off Rose Windows as a just another example of Seattle’s affection for neo-folk music, but relegating them to that category is too simplistic. While the band has down-home harmonies that could go mano-a-mano with the Fleet Foxes, you can also hear in their music echos of The Band, Joni Mitchell, The Decemberists and Jefferson Airplane.  Their debut LP, “The Sun Dogs” came out June 25 on Sub Pop. Singer Rabia Quazi and guitarist Nils Peterson gave us their thoughts on passing out at Block Party, their new record and “insufferable psychedelic garbage.”
