Stream Memoryhouse's "The Slideshow Effect"
Memoryhouse's dreamy debut LP "The Slideshow Effect" is streaming in full over at Spin. It's nice to hear this sound being published by Sub Pop. I find it annoying that Dum Dum Girls are used as a reference for Memoryhouse's sound. That act isn't bad or anything, but just nothing more than another band that sounds like many more out there. Not a point of reference, as nothing much that wasn't done before and better, is happening.
Again, it's that point at which you decide to go in for familiar or new/the next thing. Ignore the "sounds like" name drops and form your own opinion. I know I did, and I found the album to be worth my time.
