Roz Raskin & the Rice Cakes

RozRaskin

Roz Raskin and the Rice Cakes won us over after witnessing the sold-out crowd singing along throughout her CD release party last summer for The Friend Ship. Raskin plays the electric piano with the same passion she exudes on the mic. "Hear My Voice" and "Tourist Attraction" bring out the best, and her heartfelt lyrics are well-complemented by Casey Belisle's racket behind the kit and bassist Justin Foster's melodic rumble. Raskin's background in jazz and folk illuminate "We Search for Violent Hills" and "Boys and Girls," and the 21-year-old singer will captivate any room when she launches into "The Beating," an intense and unnerving number.

Runners-up
2. The 'Mericans
3. Route .44
4. Coma Coma

The Rice Cakes are comprised of three kids who love making new and experimental music; singer/keyboardist Roz Raskin, drummer Casey Belisle, and bassist Justin Foster....
