The second that I started playing this album by Houses, I knew that I would love it. It’s not a feeling that I get with every album.
The songs are all appealing in their own way. “Fast Talk” will have you hooked from the start.
“That song is meant to be a memorial for a group of friends I had back in my late teens,” explains Dexter Tortoriello, adding, “Thematically it’s almost like a ballet where you keep driving around the same blocks, and people start disappearing from the car because they’re going to jail or dying.”
Personally, I like “Pink Heaven.” It’s catchy and haunting at the same time – sort of like ghost stories. They scare us but we want to hear more.
Drugstore Heaven will be out for everyone to hear on September 28.
