Feeling a bit camera shy


House of Isness is a band started by multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Rob Hecht (formerly of Blue Merle). It features Evan Marien (currently a Berklee College of Music student) on bass, Danny Hynds (an ethereal genius), and the tastiest drumming this side of the Mississippi by Jordan Snow.

wayfarin stranger, bOnE fiddle-n-harmony style: thaT'S SOME heavy, real monumEntALLY powerful stuff that you'd either have to travel 1000's of miles to find or just have the good fortune to run into a magic man/band such as yours' elves...

and that mandolin playing.. jimmypage got nothin on you.. you got the fire on both instruments for sure, way to burn, baby! you got that slithering serpent style fiddle mojo bag like i 'aven't heard before!

but hearing 2 sets after lisnin to that ep.. i'm just really noticing the high-planes-ness of it, the atmospherics that you guys create.. that thought fully fermented while danny was doing the thing with the delay/sampler effect on NO Sunshine..

..and it went along with what I'd been listening to.. Astor Piazzolla... the way that guy's sound really WAS Beunos Aries, you can hear it in every one of his songs: just that sound of street life.. what's going on, something here, something there, what's the weather like?

Usually it would tend to be more of a Morricone vibe with you guys( the bridge on "Eternal Now?" is great and does remind me heavily of Syd Barrett's Floyd, like something great that they never did..)

Cuz you did ask: what do we sound like? and that's a very clever question, almost a dare, because when you're not consciously trying to ape anyone... i would'nt want to call that bluff, if that's what it is..
