"Rosas Epektos" is the debut album of the Philippine band Bing Austria & The Flippin Soul Stompers. - whose sound should be familiar to the attentive reader from the film "Ruined Heart - Another Love Story between a criminal and a whore".

One of the many musical highlights of the film was undoubtedly the soulful performance by the Filipino rocksteady band Bing Austria & the Flippin' Soul Stompers with their own version of the song "Ruined Heart". This is how the idea came about to record an entire album with Bing Austria + The Flippin' Soul Stompers. Over two dozen songs were created in just four days. The lyrics of "Rosas Epektos" are all penned by Khavn, who is not only a filmmaker and composer, but also a poet. In the evenings in Manila, Bing Austria + The Flippin' Soul Stompers play old soul classics from Otis Redding to James Brown for the tourists in the hotels. But at night they go to the bars and play their own songs. Manila's urban scene is heavily influenced by pop culture from the echo chamber of the American colonial era, but the influences that you can hear on "Rosas Epektos" go much further: 1960s soul and Jamaican beats mix with psychedelic and krautrock.
