Memoryhouse embark on tour; OH IF THESE MEMORYWALLS COULD MEMORYTALK

Memoryhouse embark on tour; OH IF THESE MEMORYWALLS COULD MEMORYTALK

“If these walls could talk.” Okay, let me pull up a stool and lay some truth on you. Or if you have a chair, I’ll turn it around and rest my arms on its back. That phrase, the one about the talking walls, is disgusting. If the walls of your house could talk, they would yell at you about the horrific things they have seen. At the bare minimum, those walls have watched you and anyone you live with and any of your houseguests poop over and over again. Being a sentient house is to live in an endless nightmare.

But the memories! Bah, if I wanted memories, I’d listen to dreamy Sub Pop outfit Memoryhouse. All the memory, all the house, none of the icky implications. The band released their debut album The Slideshow Effect on Tuesday, complete with all the gauzy haze you’d expect from a group + album combo with the words “memory” and “slideshow.” Now, it’s time to create new memories. Memories can be made from anything, as long as those things happened. If you go see Memoryhouse on their tour, whether it be in North America or the UK, you’ll one day have memories of that time you saw Memoryhouse on their tour. Eventually, Memoryhouse will turn your memories into a new album and that is how the sausage is made.
