At least four recording artists call themselves Houses: 1) a indie duo from Chicago, Illinois, United States. 2) an alternative pop band from Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 3) a psychedelic rock and roll revival band from Denver, Colorado, United States. 4) a four piece grind band from Reno, Nevada, United States.
Additional info on each band: 1. Originally from Chicago, Houses is Dexter Tortoriello and Megan Messina. They formed in 2010 after a 3 month stint in Papaikou, Hawaii, living off the land. With no modern conveniences the couple worked for meals during the day cultivating indigenous micro-organisms and learning the basics of sustainable living.
This was the inspiration behind their first album, All Night, put out on Lesfe Records. In the time since the couple have moved to Los Angeles, signed to Downtown Records (Major Lazer, White Denim, Cold War Kids, Miike Snow, Santigold) and written their sophomore album, A Quiet Darkness (2013). Recorded over the course of 2012 splitting time between their new home and Sonic Ranch, the album's narrative tells the story of a husband and wife separated in the midst of a nuclear disaster and their attempt to re-unite with one another along the Highway 10 in California before their inevitable deaths, each song taking place in different abandoned houses along the way. Tortoriello and Messina made the same trek a couple of times themselves to record sound and video at these abandoned houses that are featured in the album. ...show less
