There are at least three bands with the name Roosevelt
1) Alias of Cologne based producer Marius Lauber, signed to Greco-Roman, the Berlin-London party collective and record label that has been a home for Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Disclosure, Baio and Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard.
His debut single ‘Sea’ blends Balearic haze with his hometown’s trademark electronica to make loved-up guitar pop.

2) Athens music scene veterans may remember shaggy rock power trio Roosevelt as one of a pile of heavy hitting rock bands who kicked up some post-jangle dust in the early-’90s. Roosevelt played hard, loud, and fast.

They had elements of the blues-rock of ZZ Top and Zep, the ambling country-twang sounds of Neil Young and Johnny Cash, the prog tendencies of King Crimson, and the quirky punk of Meat Puppets and Minutemen.

As the bassist John Crain, drummer Ballard Lesemann, and guitarist Daniel Pruitt grew older, they matured musically, developing an accomplished instrumental technique and moving closer to the prog-rock complexities that were always underneath its punk. But Roosevelt never quite abandoned its classic rock roots, no matter how tangled. Roosevelt (named for the U.S. presidents, not the likable old guy who danced and hung out at the Georgia Theatre) kicked up in Athens in late 1989. Crain (of Greenville, S.C.) and Pruitt (of Savannah, Ga.) were longhaired university students who had already put a year or so into the prog-rock trio I.S.S. (or “Independent Skyleague Section”) with drummer Isaac McCalla.
