New Houses: “Circles and Squares”

houses-summer-ep-cover

One of my favorite bands right now, in Denver or otherwise, is the ebullient collective known as Houses. The focus of my first Queen City Spotlight a few months back, these folks continue to illuminate the local scene with their expansive, golden songs that explode off the stage every time I’ve seen them.

Houses is releasing their second seasonal EP for summer TONIGHT at the Meadowlark‘s outdoor stage ($8, 8pm, with The Wheel‘s Joseph Pope III, and Snake Rattle Rattle Snake).

Here’s a track from the new EP, one that’s become a high point of their live show – imagine at the five minute mark where the “ba-ba-ba-duh-daaaaa“ing starts, but everyone in the crowd yelling along as loud as they possibly can.

It’s everything that makes Houses the perfect soundtrack to my summer.

Circles & Squares – Houses

  • Hey Heather,
    Any idea when the EP is going to be available for purchase and/or download? I was about to order the Spring EP and figured it may make sense to double up my purchase with Summer.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
