Pleased to Meet You: Horrible Houses
I don’t know how I stumbled upon this great little recording project, but I’m grateful that I did. If you’re looking for some low key lo-fi, then meet Sweden’s Horrible Houses. They’ve been hard at work this summer, releasing two collections titled Family Tapes Volume I and II. The track below is one of my personal favorites, though I’ve been spending my entire day jamming to the whole of FT Volume I. From start to finish these compilations are full of hits, and while it’s said to be sort of a basement recording you wouldn’t really be able to tell by just listening. Sure, there’s little details that hint at the process being done in a small space, but it seems so much more than that. I suppose that’s just the power of great songwriting.
