[video] memoryhouse – ‘quiet america’

August 20, 2011

“I tend to view Quiet America as a sort of “Hello!” to counter Lighthouse’s “Goodbye!”. A “Hello” steeped in ambivalence, and a little self-doubt, but a greeting none the less. I suppose that’s what I mean when I said the E.P. represents something else to us now. Whereas it’s initial release—set loose upon the ravenous bowels of the internet (and what ravenous bowels they are!)— was a resignation of sorts, mired in the kind of disconnection and existential angst that played a large role in defining the aughts for many. The Yearsnow represents the idea that life can improve in the most unusual and fantastical ways if one were to open themselves to experience (something I fought tooth and nail for many years) and that, as always, music has the capacity to grow with us through the many different stages in our lives.” -Evan Abeele of Memoryhouse

Memoryhouse – Quiet America

Don’t forget, the re-recorded, remixed and remastered release of 2010s stellar The Years EP is set for reissue on September 13 from Sub Pop and, better yet, Memoryhouse is stopping by Orlando this fall.
