Memoryhouse immediately left behind simple and quiet for a big, atmospheric sound. Their best songs opened with synths and light drums then built to guitar riffs over a wall of sound.
Last weekend I went to see Memoryhouse with Seapony and Jay Arner at the Waldorf. It was a great show! Memoryhouse is a band from Guelph, Ontario getting tons of hype on big-deal blogs like Pitchfork and Stereogum, and yet the show felt small and personal.
