Memoryhouse Tour w/ Twin Sister

Another "chill" artist that has struck our fancy these past few months are the excellent Canadian duo Memoryhouse. Not to use this quickly rising group as a platform for pontification, but they are a clear example of the rule that if you write focused and lasting compositions, people will pay attention regardless of genre. Aka, don't be lo-fi for lo fidelity's sake - WRITE GOOD SONGS. Memoryhouse have a free ep, and a huge tour coming up with some big names including fellow "buzz" band, the ace outfit Twin Sister. Memoryhouse's full LP Looms of Youth is due later this year. Check out the dates after the jump. See their video for "Lately (Deuxime)" here.
