Chicago duo Houses recorded the upcoming LP All Night in Hawaii, where they lived for a brief stint in a little cabin, practicing sustainable living, until the money ran out. While there, the two "melted into one person," and that melding of souls is apparent on today's PJOTD, "Soak It Up."
I am a total sucker for songs like this: cold electronics blend with earthy percussion, boy-and-girl vocals bend and echo, washed-out bridges fade into mellow beats. It is a isolated cabin, a balmy morning at the beach, and true, absolute love.
Houses - Soak It Up
The "sonically intimate" All Night comes out October 19th on Lefse. Preorder it now.
