So the year is almost over and I wanted to put together a super cool ‘year end’ list with all my favorite things, but unfortunately my favorite things took up most of the time I should have been writing about them. This is going to be an attempt at sharing some things that haven’t already been put on a billion other best of lists. Top 5 Video Games I’ve played this year...

A Seeing Life
Here’s a song I recorded today after purchasing a Casio SK-5. All the sounds on the recording were sampled into the keyboard/modified and ran through a bunch of pedals. We haven’t put out anything new for a while. It feels good to get something out, even though it’s not really a ‘Houses’ track. Houses - A Seeing Life by HousesMusic

Reds (Official Video) - Directed By Lamar + Nik Ice sculptures were made using a series of handmade clay molds. Soldering irons were used for details. Lighting was solely provided by T.V.’s/Christmas Lights. Filmed all practically, NO CGI, in a normal two car garage for a little over $200 dollars.

Here's something I wrote as a kid:
Sleep in your car. Name church bells after your friends that died. Lay awake in bed until morning in complete silence. Forget your one true love’s face. Hang your holy cards on your bedroom walls. Bite your tongue until it bleeds and try to remember the last time you tasted your own blood. Break your favorite possession and mourn it’s passing. Say a prayer you learned in grade...
Covered LCD Soundsystem’s ‘All My Friends’ with Will Wiesenfeld of Baths for the AV Club
A few months ago I started a side project with some songs that I’d been playing around with that didn’t fit with Houses. I threw them up on a bandcamp and sold the EP to a few very nice people. The sales slowly dwindled away as the few blog posts the songs got cycled onto the second page into the “older” section (as things so often go these days). I loved the tracks and put...
Video I put together for the tour I did with Baths and Braids. The song is made entirely of samples I recorded while on the road! Enjoy :)
