Author’s Pick – Memoryhouse

CAREGIVER :: Memoryhouse :: Dream Pop

I’m not a huge fan of dream pop as a whole; a fair amount of it has seemed a bit repetitive and uneventful to me, though I’m not one to generalize. Memoryhouse, though, stands out. It’s the Canadian duo of Evan and Denise. Their music consists of floating vocals that haunt the mind long after the first listen, skittering drums that recall shoegaze rock groups like Widowspeak and Daughter, and swirling synthesizer production that begs to be played aloud on a calm summer’s day. Be sure to check out their later work– their new album, Soft Hate, is quietly gorgeous. Sounds like: Daughter without the sense of mourning, Braids with a calmer tempo, a female-fronted Phoria
